Point Away From Edge

Category Motion
Type Stack
Removed in November 2006 Beta

The Point Away From Edge block was a Motion block and a Stack block. This used to point the sprite away from the edge, like bouncing without even touching the edge. In the Java Player, the block works as a normal If on Edge, Bounce block instead. It was removed in the November 2006 Beta due to being glitchy, and it was made an obsolete block. This block is not in Scratch 2.0 (the Flash Player) anymore, but still usable in Scratch 1.4,[1] and in some Scratch Modifications. [problematic]

Workaround

Instead of using this block, one can create a sprite at the center and have another sprite point towards it. Center sprite:

when gf clicked
go to x: (0) y: (0)

Other sprite:

point towards [Center v]
