Hello Shawn!
  1.thanks for your quick reply,I tried to change some of the shapes, by 
pressing  Double click  in the Shape center,and make it larger, but I it 
didn't minimize the project.
  2. another problem, in the attached file, I want to set paramters of text, 
by calling "change_text", and nothing happened to the text.
  The idea is that the bless  the user wish, will be shown like its written on 
the turtle (wall in the project), and the textbox will be hidden.
  I tried it also with stamptext, and it's didn't work (trouble with 
  Is there a way that textbox will fit it's size to the text getting from 
                       thanks , Zehava Wizman

Hello Zehava,

usually images borrowed from the www aren't large in file size. 
However, it's bit of a tradeoff, that is you'll lose image quality to 
make a smaller project. If you're using any other version besides 
EX, paste the image into you work area, scale it down (selecting and 
dragging the handles) and then copy and paste that image into your 
Shape Center. Double click it in the Shape center, then select and 
drag the handles to make it larger. The result will be an image with 
less quality, although it will keep the size of your project down to 
a minimum.

If you're using MicroWorlds EX, you should use the Personal folder 
found in the Graphics folder in your MicroWorlds EX directory. 
Simply place any images that you intend to use into the Personal 
folder. Under the MicroWorlds File menu, select Import/Picture, 
navigate to your Personal folder and select the image. These images 
remain independent from your project so they won't increase the size 
of your project. Just keep in mind that if you want your project to 
be portable, you'll have to include your Personal folder.

Please don't hesitate to write me back with any other questions.
