I haven't had much luck in getting tiles from viewer on Morph to work. 
For example (if in viewer script):

EllipseMorph borderColor: Color white (all as a tile)

does nothing. When I exit out to the enclosing project, I receive an 
error message that says

Message notUnderstood: EllipseMorph >> prepareToBeRunning

Of course because I'm a fairly absolute beginner, there's always the 
possibility that I've just missed something obvious .... :)
