Moving Variables To Specific Locations

I'm still new to Scratch and I'm pretty sure you can't do this but I thought it would be pretty useful if you could move Variables to a specific location by using Motion blocks such as “go to x:___y:____.” I think this would be useful because I like having things at a specific location and as of now I believe you have to free hand move variables. Thanks for reading!

No support.

Scratch is meant to be a gateway into the world of programming languages, so why add a feature that is not present in any other language?

Scratchers should learn that variables are not actually a means of displaying information, they are a method of storing information, as they are in every other language.

Yes that would be so helpful, esspecialy if the varible is in large scale format.

No support, if you want to display information, just learn how to use sprites to make a counter, it's a valuable learning experience that everyone should go through at some point if they want to make polished projects.

Take my project Stylish pong. If I had just used a variable for the counter it would have been much easier, but would it fit the aesthetic? Nope.

If you want to make good looking polished projects, learn how to make good UI. That's all.

Support. I can create my own style or fonts, but it would be easier, when we can edit the variables, too.

Programming is never supposed to be easy, because if it is, you'll never learn anything. Variables are there to help us “save” things, and I also use it for debugging. But if you want prettier variables and such, learn to make your own variable displayer. It is a valuable learning experience that will really help you. Long ago, 3 years ago, I would have supported this, but now that I understand that Scratch is more than a “game maker”.. No support, as per all the reasons stated before. Keep thinking up ideas, though ^-^ Maybe your next idea would be implemented!

I support, and they should also add go to front blocks, for lists as well
(variable)go to x: (100) y: (100)

Can't you just hide then show the variable

I guess, but what happens if this happens on and off and it happens during the time someone plays it.
