Category Pen
Type Stack
The Pen down block is a Pen block and a Stack block. The block will make a sprite continuously pen a trail wherever it moves until the Pen up block is used. The color, width, and shade of the trail can be changed with their own blocks.

Common Uses

This block is not commonly used, but still has its specific uses. When a sprite will continuously pen a trail (as in a project where the goal is to fill the whole screen, for example), most projects will use this block. Besides that, some examples are as follows:

  • Drawing patterns on the screen
