As well as retaining all the functionality of the original Scratch and BYOB, Scribble also allows for:


An entire new palette of shapes blocks allows any type of shape you can think of to be drawn on the canvas, complete with border and fill colours



The pen, shape and stamp tools can have their transparency controlled using the ghosting effect



The text palette included with Scribble allows the generation of text to be specified in programs
