You know how there's these reporters in the look section?
(costume #)
(backdrop name)
(size)
And other reporters in other sections like:
(x position)
(y position)
(direction)
(volume)
(tempo)
(answer)
(loudness)
(timer)
(video [ v] on [ v])
(current [ v])

All of these reporters have a tick mark box in the editor.
My suggestion is to have another one of these in the editor
(pen size :: pen)
with a tick mark box next to it. The only blocks related to pen thickness are:
change pen size by () // Can't detect thickness, but changes it

set pen size to () // What if you had a perfect thickness size?
I think this would be something useful.

you can make it green by typing this

pen size::pen reporter
pen size::pen reporter
And they are called reporters, not booleans.

Anyway, support.

It's called a reporter, booleans only return “0” or “1”
Support and also for
(pen color :: pen) // reports the color in decimal

Fixed.

Number 1000: the first time you see this copy and paste it on top of your sig in the scratch forums and decrease the number by 1, and add your username to the end of the number, but only if there wasn't a username already there! Comment on the user who you found this from's profile saying that you continued the experiment. Social experiment started by dude341, based on “generation social experiment” trend.

set pen color to (0)

Support, but maybe just have a dropdown menu.

(pen [size v]:: pen)

Maybe. Although I almost forgot about this, this was from 14 months ago! Try not to necropost next time.

It's OK to do this, and is not considered nercroposting, if the topic is still relevant. If ST hasn't yet rejected or implemented the feature into scratch, then it is likely still relevant.
Thanks!

Warning: Complicated, and mind blowing.
Zeno's Paradox: I can prove you can't get anywhere. Before you get from where you are to where you wish to go, you first have to go halfway to the endpoint. From there, you go half of the remaining way. And halfway, on and on, but you can never reach your goal, because there will always be the smallest fraction of space you haven't gone through.
I can also prove you can't move. Similar to the above, I will use the same principals to prove you can't move. We already know that to get to your destination, you must first go halfway. In addition, before you get to the halfway point, you must first go halfway to the halfway point. And then before you get there, you must first go halfway. And on and on, you get smaller and smaller fractions of space you must first travel to. You can never move away from where you are.
Go here for more paradoxes!! Wow, this is a long sig. Bring the semicolon back to life! I'm a New Scratcher with 500+ posts!

I would like to see pen reporters in scratch, it would help people know where the pen currently is at on all values. Which can add much more opportunities for creativity

e.g.
(pen [color v]::pen) //color, saturation, brightness, transparency, size, RGB value, hex value

when green flag clicked
forever
if <(pen [size v]::pen) > [100]> then
say [that is too big.]
set pen size to (100)
say [] for (0) secs
end
end

Support, because with the workaround, what if you do something like:

change pen color by (pick random (1) to (200))

Then, how would the workaround work?

you could do
change [pen color v] by (pick random (1) to (200))
set pen color to (pen color)
but thanks for the support!

Just so you know in 3.0 it's now
colour
saturation
brightness
transparency
I think all these sorts of values should just have an inbuilt reporter to be honest. Sure, the work around is technically easy, but it's a bit messy and easy to accidentally mess up.



Witty signature.

Support! This would be pretty helpful.

Maybe there could just be one block with a dropdown?

(pen [color v] :: pen) // dropdown includes color, size, shade, transparency, RGB value, hex value

Yeah, that's definitely better than 3 separate blocks xD
