Pen write in the front of sprites? Always behind

I have a student using the pen to write the score on the screen during gameplay. However, the pen is always behind all of the sprites. We have the object writing with the pen going to the front layer right before writing the score, but it is still behind all of the objects in the scene.

Is it possible to do layering with the pen, or is it always behind all objects by default?

If I'm not mistaken, the pen is always behind objects. However, you could use the the Text Costumes library.

The canonical way to display scores is to use a variable watcher set to "large" mode (right-click on the watcher).

Or, you can write it on the stage, then switch the costume using the [scratchblocks](pen trails ::pen)[/scratchblocks] block, and go to the front layer.
