    I am a relative novice, both to app inventor and to these forums, and i was looking for a bit of help with an application I had in mind.

    Firstly, i was wondering if there was a way for a word, when touched, to be able to turn into a different (predefined) word e.g. in another language.

    I was also wondering if there was a copy/paste function in block editor.

    Thirdly, I don't know how to do multiple pages, help with that anyone?

    Finally, I would greatly appreciate it if someone could explain how to use the clock as a calendar (e.g. on Wednesday 22 December display the text 'help') or similar.

    help on any or all of these would be greatly appreciated.

    1) Changing words
    You'll need to use buttons with no background so only the text shows and use ifelse tests to determine what the text should change to.

    2) Copy/paste in blocks editor
    You can select the block and use ctrl+c / ctrl+v. You can't do that from one app to another, but that's on the feature list.

    3) Multiple pages
    Please see my tutorial Creating Multiple Pages
    Creating Multiple Pages - App Inventor Info Center

    4) Clock as calendar
    Check out the clock tutorial's on Ed's site Blocks123. You could probably use something there to accomplish what you need.
