Alice syntax switch -- transition to editing in Java syntax
This user comes from

Quick summary in ten words or less
Java style in Alice shows the punctuation

More details

Alice has a great feature -- the syntax switch. Turn on Java style with the Edit/Preferences menu. In Java style, all the punctuation shows up. This prepares the student for transition to coding in Java.

Note that you may need to restart Alice for the switch to take effect.

The "Learn to Program with Alice" book goes over the syntax switch on page 280. We consider this to be the best Alice book and highly recommend it for self-study.
