I feel like someone else has probably already suggested this, but I think that it would be extremely useful to right click and edit a variable (just like editing a custom block) to change its name and change if it is ‘for all sprites’ or ‘for this sprite only’ or if it is a cloud variable or not. If you know of another topic exactly like this one just link me to it so I can support.

Support. Also being able to set its value like this without having to drag out a “set variable” block would be good.

Support. Definitely come in useful. At the moment we have to delete the variable and recreate it in order to do that, so this would be much more convenient.

Exactly, to rename you have to delete, make a new one, and go to every instance of the variable in your project to switch it to the new name, which gets frustrating. Thanks for supporting

First off, you can already rename your variables. Just follow these steps-
  1. Go into the “Data” tab.
  2. Right click on the variable you want to rename.
  3. Select “rename varaible.”
  4. Type in the new name of the variable and hit ok.
Second off, no support for the other functions. This could cause problems with the Scratch program.

woah rename variable must be new-ish, cool! also how could it cause problems for scratch if we could change if a variable is cloud or not or if it is this sprite only or not without completely deleting the variable?

Actually, the variable rename function has been around for a while- I think it was included in the Scratch 1.4 to Scratch 2.0 upgrade.

And about the cloud variable to regular variable thing, I'm not sure if the program could handle changes like that. Besides, it's not even that big of a problem. How often do you need to change a regular variable to a cloud variable or to a private variable? In the rare occasion that that does happen, I don't think a delete and recreate would be too hard.

I'm almost positive the rename variable wasn't introduced when 2.0 became public, I'll check the latest update to check that because I think the rename variable was recent

I know I've used it ever since my first account was created (it was created just before the website switched to Scratch 2.0)

I wish you could change the font and colour of a variable, actually, can you??



when I receive [a candy bar v]
wait until <you eat the candy bar>
if <you have a sugar rush(call me ;-))> then

Yes that would come in handy at times.

Can you make nameless variables? Because I've seen them but I can't work out how to do it.

Maybe ask in Help With Scripts? I suspect it was a bug in Scratch that allowed that and has since been fixed.

Support. You CAN rename variables, but I also like choosing whether it's for cloud, it's for all sprite/this sprite, and etc.
