Updates

The Offline Editor can update itself (with user permission). It will check for updates at startup or you can use the "Check for updates" command in the file menu.

The current version is v426b, updated 22 October 2014.

Older Versions of Scratch

If you have an older computer, or cannot install the Scratch 2.0 offline editor, you can try installing Scratch 1.4.

Known issues

  • If your offline editor is crashing directly after Scratch is opened, install the Scratch 2 offline editor again (see step 2 above.) This issue is due to a bug introduced in Adobe Air version 14. (released April 2014).
  • Graphic effects blocks (in "Looks") may slow down projects due to a known Flash bug.
  • The backpack is not yet available.
