You must click the gear icon to access the configuration of the start block. Then drag the "enable colourtail" block into the 'C' with the usual "Direction" and "Sleep after". The "menu" will then be shown on the start block. This is the same as getting at the options to set legs to outputs

BTW you can add a simulation of the glowbugs or colourtail to the web emulator via the settings (gear icon) to change "Emulator settings".
Changing the emulator settings actually reconfigures the start block for you.

This is all mentioned in the tutorial text.

Thanks for the replies guys.

I tried using "Create" and it does indeed appear in the menu options, its just AWOL in the tutorial as Mike confirmed.

I can see my son having a lot of fun with this if he can prize it out of my hands :)

I don't think it will be long before more Codebugs are ordered

About how long is it taking for people to get the colourstar from codebug?
I placed an order via Paypal for one two days ago and haven't heard anything yet,
even a confirmation of the order from them.
