The trick here is that you need to make an explicit gesture to
"submit" your code after typing it in textually. To do this, type
alt-s (or, on the Mac, type command-s or hit the Enter key). [Think:
s stands for "save").
Once you've submitted textual code for a script, there's no going
back to tiles for that script without abandoning your textual
version. If you try to toggle back to tiles, you'll be presented
Caution -- this script was changed
textually; if you revert to tiles at this
point you will lose all the changes you
may have made textually. Do you
really want to do this?
The tile vocabulary encompasses only a tiny fraction of the full
Smalltalk language and class library. There are many things in
Smalltalk that cannot be represented in etoy tiles.
