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
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
when [:time < timer] [
to pages :n :time
if :n > 4 [stopall]
make "pg word "page :n
when [:time < timer] [
run pages :n + 1 :time]
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
