One way to advance the plot of a story is to change the setting.

There are lots of ways to change the setting.

You can: select a backdrop from the library.

Draw a backdrop. Or, upload a picture from your computer.

If you like, use more than one setting for your story.

Maybe your characters start in one place, and travel to another.

To do that, select or create more than one backdrop.

Then, use “switch backdrop to” blocks from the looks menu to change scenes in your story.

Click the flag to try it out. Oh no. The setting never changes back.

Add a “switch backdrop to” block to the start of the story to reset it.

Replace the “when flag clicked” event with a “when backdrop switches to” block.

This will run your code when a new scene starts.

Test your code often to make sure it's running in the order you'd like.
