Connecting a serial console and grabbing the crash output would be the
next step here.

> Labyrinth - found that you cannot change the text colour in the central idea, only the other nodes

Thanks, filed as http://bugs.sugarlabs.org/ticket/3710

> Tamtam mini - if you use the game direction rocker to move between the instruments the page doesn’t automatically scroll to show what instrument you have selected, but you can use the game circle and cross keys to manually scroll. Sometimes the sound gets distorted and crackly (speaker quality issue or load issue?).

> Clock - no time displayed when you press the “display time in full letters” button. Talking clock asks you what time is it, rather than telling you what time it is. Reported previously.

This is probably a problem with the translation that you're using. If
still present, please file a bug and mention which locale you're

> Simplegraph - oooo we really like this!! so much potential! quickly worked out how to add values and labels, though I didn’t read the tool tip and found the “remove selected value” was not what I thought it was (expected it to move the value and label up the list, like a shuffle values around). Is there a plan to add scatter graph? It would be good if you could see the labels on the graph a bit bigger font size as they are quite hard to read. I would like to import the data in stopwatch (yay! we have been waiting for something for this!) but I am wondering how it could overlay the stopwatch data from each watch. It seems to be able to import either one stopwatch with multiple marks, or lots of stopwatches but only uses the highest time mark. Really looking forward to seeing this activity develop.

>From what I've been told, the activity is currently at a bit of a
dead-end in terms of being able to polish it further (e.g. making the
fonts more readable). However, it will be ported to another engine in
future which should improve things and allow for further changes like

> Physics - something wrong with top 15% of the screen, kind of hidden with flashy bits sometimes showing objects there but mostly not. Drew a large rectangle on the right that went all the way up, and the top seemed to ‘vibrate’ between shorter and taller versions. Upon closer inspection, it was not the top of the square but actually the top of the canvas that was becoming inactive at the top - placing the cursor (or create any object) at the top of the canvas made this obvious.
