    I have found your info extremely helpful, and have a question. How do you change the “home” icon (the one that takes you back to the home page) to some other name (“back”)? My lower functioning students think it represents going home, and become quite upset when their request can’t be honored.

      Are you talking about the little home icon on the bottom of the page in the editing bar? If that is what you are talking about, I don’t think there is any way to change that icon.

      Would like to know if you’ve found a way to change the home icon/word on the home page. I’ve spent countless hours trying to find something -

    A user had a question about how to cut and paste items into a home page folder on Proloquo2Go. Here is the answer from SNapps4Kids:
    Go into edit mode
    -Select the button that you want to copy and choose copy from the pop menu ( You will then see it appear in the message window)
    -Go out of the edit mode and go the page you want to paste it on
    -Go back into edit mode and in the upper right corner you will see a small button labeled paste, select that button
    ** You can select multiple buttons to paste, just go to each button and select copy and you will see all the buttons you have selected in the message window and then go to the page you want and select paste and it will paste all of the buttons at once.
    ** If you copy a folder it will copy the folder button as well as the link to all the items in the folder
