Saving Your Work

remember.eps Remember to save your work so you can come back to it again later. You can find the option to save in the File menu at the top of the screen, or you can click the floppy disc icon in the top left.

When the Save dialog box opens (see Figure 10-12), you’ll see buttons on the left to choose from various places you could save your file, although you might not have permission to use all of them (see Chapter 5 for more on permissions). I recommend you use the Scratch folder inside your Pi directory.

On the right, you can add your name and some project notes to remind you what the project was about later. You can see and edit the project notes associated with a file by going through the File menu when you’re working on a program.


Scratch is developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab. See .
