Upgrade to ARC Pro

Your robot can be more than a simple automated machine with the power of ARC Pro!



I'm having a problem with the Custom Movement Control on this version.

If I create a script for a command, its not saved, even though if I go back to look at the script it shows a multi-line script has been entered.

User-inserted image

If I click edit pencil, it defaults to Blockly and if I click EZ-Script, the script I entered is gone

User-inserted image

I verified that this does not happen on my other laptop running 2017.01.17.00

In fact, If I create the script there and save it to The EZ-Cloud Apps Store the script does not show up when load on my other system running 2017.01.20.00, but continues to show up if download from the cloud to my 2017.01.17.00 system

Is there some default I need to set to pick EZ-Script over blockly?
