  I use the vanilla image for my presentations.  So, either:




and update the image from the World menu available Alt-, -> 'help...'
-> 'update code from server', and save it.  The former comes with some
example projects, it would be more convenient.

For making many projects and do some "tricks", I tend to prefer to
turn off eToyFriendly mode preference.  So I usually use the fully
updated dev image.  Just load some examples and make.  To give a
uniform looking projects, I have a stupid do it written in a Text
object (whose font size and color are set up for the presentation,
too) and stick it to the Object flap.  When I create a new Project in
the image, I drag the Text out along with other "template" type stuff,
and evaluate the do it in the text.  Then I just type a few words in
to the text to make (err) bullet points.
