Line 1030 should be:

Thank you. I've managed to get this program fully working now. Although I want to be able to display the sprite as I draw it. I've tried to do this but as the character square is also a sprite it Interferes with it. Any suggestions?

No, not really.  I suppose, you could always take a look at the sprite editor that came with Commodore's own Program Pack and compare how that works to this editor.

I've attached a disk image of the Program Pack below.

Additional:  Loadstar also published a simple but useful sprite editor.  It's also written in BASIC and published in issue #14. See attached a disk image with the program.

Is there a Book/PDF of the Commodore_64_Program_Pack.d64 ?

Not that I'm aware of.  If I'm remembering correctly, I obtained my original with my 1541 and the only book was the 1541 user manual.  Most of the programs, though, do have instructions included on how to use them.

Yeah, but, the sprite editor is pointing to page 200. Also I find this odd that a sprite editor or a joystick tester can with a 1541 manual?

It's been over 40 years, so I'm probably remembering incorrectly.  I just don't recall a manual for the program disk.  Also, I don't think the page 200 is referring to a manual.  If you use the - and + keys, the page number can be changed.  Is it a memory location or something maybe?

Update #1:

Yes, if you press S the program asks which page location you wish to save.

Update #2:

If you do a listing of the program, you will find REM statements that describe all of the functionality of the program.  Just refer to the GOTOs above to learn which key activate each function.  Not very intuitive, but at least is some sort of documentation.

Yes there are 256 pages of 256 bytes each in the C64's 64K of addressable memory.
Sometimes it is important a data structure not to cross a page boundary for performance (cycle penalty).
The sprite data seems page aligned in high RAM on page 200.
