Last year we started with this method of making parallel tracks before 
we realized how to use the turn feature in the move block. I've always
felt that this portion of the interface is a bit difficult (along with
the fact that comments do not attach to blocks).

I would like to hear from any users of Robolab if that tool is
better/worse than the NXT software. Has anyone done a comparison, or
has experience that can determine if one might be better?
