Description

It would be useful if the user could see/jump to the definition of an action by, for example, right-clicking on the block that call the action.

Not sure what you mean by "definition of an action": The action stack itself?

comment:2 Changed 5 years ago by martasd

Yeah. Somehow draw user's attention (perhaps by highlighting?) to where the action stack is located on the screen. When I write larger programs, I often cannot find the stack that defines an action I am calling because they are many of them on the screen. Does that make sense?

We'll have to come up with a design for this. I don't currently support right click for anything in Turtle, but I am thinking that right click on an action and it would pan the screen to center the corresponding stack in the screen? Not sure how that would feel.

Yes, that sounds like a good idea. In addition, highlighting the corresponding stack could be useful as well.
