@DolphinGirl7, you didn’t place the repeat times in a when game is playing rule by any chance, did you?

I just completely ignore that block, and give it the cold shoulder. No one will ever replace when 7 = 7

I teach my students that when game is playing is an evil block. If they ever use it, their parents will be contacted

Maybe it detects the input actions on the onscreen keyboard as an iPad tap…

perhaps you could add a game variable to prevent this when the repeat times block is being executed. E.g. when disableTap=0, then execute code…
