The Pen Extension is an extension in Scratch 3.0 that allows sprites to control their pens, as well as stamp themselves onto the stage and remove all pen marks. Before Scratch 3.0, these blocks were not an extension, and were located in a category called Pen Blocks.Template:Cite post To use them, they must be enabled in the "Extensions" section of the editor.
