Has anyone got to the end of the BMI Calculator example?

Hmm - looks like confirmation that the example (well the guidance really) is not robust. Since writing my email I did get a bit further by what amounts to a process of random clicks, but now I’ve reached “resize and position the graphic as shown” when nothing IS shown, so stuck again… very frustrating.

I know I am very much behind compared to all you LC 8 aficionados, but I am not yet convinced that I really understand what a widget is, so I need to see a whole working example to understand how widgets have changed the LC that I have been using for so many years.
