  1. language

    I really want to change my language preferences to English, but I can't find the option in account settings.

    https://www.touchdevelop.com/docs/account-settings

    In this page, it seems like there should be a 'preferred language' button in my account settings, but there isn't anything like that.

    How can I change my language preferences? Thanks in advance.

    • How do I export my script

      How do I export my script? I can only see option export to Azure web page. Where do I find export to android app, html5? I want to use TouchDevelop with my students but if they cannot install it as an app on their phones, I don't want to use it.
      It's all nicely described in tutorials but I cannot find that Button in my editor!

            • Can't get into touchdevelop today

              My whole class can't log on to touchdevelop and this isn't helpful as they are working on final projects and they have limited class time to finish up.

              • Using TouchDevelop In A School - Just A Moment

                Educational establishments are slightly different to normal businesses as we have 'little rascals' who like to try and cause mayhem so we have lots of Group Policies in place stopping them from doing so (aren't we spoilsports)!

                At the moment if a Student logs on to a computer and logs in to the TouchDevelop online app all they get is a message saying 'just a moment'.

                If a member of staff logs on then it works OK - therefore it's one of the restrictions we've put in place, but which one?!

                What is the online TouchDevelop app doing at this…

                • Export to Azure Fails: "deployment error {message":" Payload Too Large"}

                  When I attempt to either deploy to a new Azure website, or to an existing one, I get this "Payload Too Large" error. This occurs with a variety of scripts, with Chrome and Edge, on different computers. Four months ago, using Chrome would solve this; now it is broken for everything I am trying.

                      • Sprite overlap does not calculate with the sprite scale value.

                        In debug mode, it is clearly visible the sprite AA boxes do not use the scale value of the sprites. The overlap functions should use the scale value of the sprite. Fix it, please.

                                  I dont know if this is some sort of replacement for the old forums, but is there anyway to restore an accidentally deleted script?

                                  Is the script stored locally on the device? I have a GUID (i think) that would identify the script that was deleted if that would be useful

                                    I would really really really appreciate it if the Touch Develop team would be able to fix the major lag issue in the editor, after more than 15 minutes editing, keyboard inputs or clicking buttons in the calculator(the one which has boxes, like a tray I just didn't knew what it was called) are received really slowly, and this affects my editing speed like how I was able to code fast in the editor.

                                    NOTE : I understand that Touch Develop is meant for teaching students or those interested to programming but don't know where to start from, I completely…

                                        • I noticed the publishing of tutorial has been blocked.

                                          I noticed the publishing of tutorial has been blocked. I tried using the standard game template and add tutorial plug in, got blocked.

                                          I also tried the standard game template without the tutorial plug in and it worked.

                                          Has Microsoft disabled the publishing of tutorial or this is a bug?
                                          Can somebody help urgently here?
