Still have the same as last time: One XO 1.0 started the activity, and
shared it on the neighbourhood. Other X0s joined, but never got to see the
'shared' view. Just a screeen with a note saying to wait until the activity
It opens fine on Mojo:( Build 301 Sugar 0.84.16 firmware Q2E44) and Monkey
(Build 302 Sugar 0.84.16 Firmware Q2E44) twilight (build 300, sugar 0.84.16,
firmware Q2E44) and Tank (xo1.5) and appears to work fine.
It initially did not open on one of the XOs but not sure whether this is
user or activity problem.
One of the users (on X01.5) started getting an endless stream of error
messages that could not be closed. Not clear what they did to generate this.
But closing on the message box or choosing 'abandon' only continued to
generate more error messages (noticed their power button was stuck on the
pressed position, which may be what generated the problems in the first
On X0 1.0, in some instances selecting the 'edit an object style' shows the
menu, but the submenu does not show the options until one mouses over it
(this does not seem to be a problem with colors, but with line style and
size). But in some other instances it shows the options fine.
Upon drawing an object it automatically reverts 'selection'. Most drawing
programs, will stay on the tool that one is using. Is this intentional? Hard
to know without documentation.
There is a general feeling that more documentation is needed. It seems that
the only way to exit the activity is through the frame. Is this the case, or
are we missing something?
Users felt more documentation is needed for the activity. It was hard to
figure out what to do/how to do it.
