This update is a big one—we tackled a bunch of the things that you said were driving you crazy with the new editor. This release will be available to everyone next week.
Here are some of the highlights:
- Reduced lagginess in the editor
- Drag characters from the keyboard onto the stage (the screen with a grid)
- Code in the editor is easier to read (though you tell us!)
- Scrolling and jumping between objects is easier
- Open and close blocks by tapping on the left side
- Drag blocks around by pressing on the right side
Play around with this beta and let us know what you think. Is it easier to write and read code in the editor? Is it faster? What is broken or confusing?

** Don’t forget that you have to trust Hopscotch to install the beta: on your device to go Settings > General > Profiles & Device Management > Trust Hopscotch). **
Thanks again for all your help,
