RUN requires either a word or a list of instructions, so  run pages :n + 1
should be run [pages :n + 1 :time].
EVERYONE applies only to turtles.
The attached shows an alternative treatment  and includes a timer.
PAGELIST always contains a list of project pages, with the first item being
the current page.  START :no.pages generates as many pages as required with
NEXT button
and PAGE textbox for each page.
NEXT, space and right arrow increment a page; left arrow decrements a page

  Tagging onto your page timer, I tried to make an automatic page turner.  See
PAGES  :n :time
  to show.page :page :time
  run :page
  when [:time < timer] [

  to pages  :n  :time
  if :n > 4 [stopall]
  make "pg  word "page :n
   run :pg
  everyone [clickon]
  when [:time < timer] [
  run pages :n + 1 :time]
  The procedure
  PAGES works with a button instruction  on page 1 pages 2 20

  it reports an error message though
  "pages didn't report anything to run"  I tried to stop it if :n was 5 but
that didn't help.
  What I'd really like is a powerpoint thing where the space bar goes to the
next page and the arrow keys go back and forward. This would need a reporter
to tell us what page we're on. I gues we could keep track of the value of :n

  Anyone solve this one? We had a presentation today with animated poetry and
the NEXT proceudre would have been helpful
    How would you create
