Hey coders! Little idea I had. What if you could select a couple of projects, tap a button titled “merge”, and have all that code and work go into a new project. I think this would be awesome! I would love to hear your opinion on it. Thanks!

Would this be similar to saving as a draft?

If I’m understanding this right, an example would be if u have a cat pixel art project and a dog pixel art project and u want them on one project u would “select them and merge them” and then they would be on a new project together? That’s a good idea :star_struck::sparkles:

Yes. That’s exactly it. Would that be cool?

Not really. U have 2 projects in drafts. You want them to be combined. You select the drafts, hit combine, and boom! There is a new draft, with both those projects in it. Would this be cool?

Definitely :)) This would be very helpful

How would they deal with duplicate variable names?

If they had a variable called ‘Touch’ twice they might just have ‘Touch’ and ‘Touch1’. Or if you had 3 duplicate variables, from 3 different drafts, then ‘Touch2’.

Maybe the app would notify you when doing the merging and ask you to choose a new variable name? The same goes for custom blocks etc.

Interesting idea. What would happen if two objects have the sane name? Or two variables?

You could do the same thing for objects. ‘Square’ and ‘Square’ would be ‘Square’ and ‘Square1’.

Good idea!

It would be very helpful, but I think it would make copying easier, though I’m not positive.

Maybe if you could only merge your own drafts together and not remixes?

Cool!
What if you had an option to save the original drafts you’re merging, and it’ll create a new draft to merge the 2 drafts in?

That’s a great idea!

would you still have the separate projects after merging? would you have 3 projects or one?

Possbly have a dialogue box that says something like
“There is a duplicate (object, variable, etc)! What would you like to do?
Replace
Rename
Delete”

Make the newer project just add a 1 to the end of it. Like “name” and “name” would become “name” and “name1”
