This app is a bit of a disappointment. The created tiles are generally red, though I had one appear in yellow. For example, when I typed in, "move 10 steps (which is a blue tile) it made it in red and almost always does the same with other commands. Frustrating and destroys the usefulness of the add-on for classroom instruction, which is too bad because it could allow for the easy creation of instructional slides. The tiles are adjustable in size, but the color of the tiles are not reliable. Please fix this! It could be a great Add-on!

I'm sorry this was giving you trouble! When blocks turn red, that means they aren't recognized as valid Scratch blocks. That often means a minor character was left out. For example, blocks that allow the user to type a value need those values to be surrounded in square brackets [ ]. The move block should be written as move [10] steps and then it will be recognized and turned into the right color. To see a full list of the syntax required for each block (including custom blocks), click "what do I type?" above the area where you type the blocks.
