Hello Steve, or whoever can help:
I've been trying to log on as "editor" (which I'm passworded for) and
change "Washington-city" to "Washington DC" (I know there's already one
there, but this one's a variant) ... and it won't let me change that
particular name! Same thing happened with a couple of other signs  
which I
had named badly. What can I do from here?
I think I'll stand at a blackboard now & write 100 times that I will not
go creating Puddle signs when tired ...

Hello Kim -
This is not your fault. There are so many things that happened in the  
software development. The reason you cannot change the names of some  
of them is because they are not signs that were made with SignPuddle  
or SignMaker...take a look at the attached diagram...see the signs  
that say Graphics Only underneath them...those cannot be changed and  
have to be re-typed in SignMaker and when they are re-typed in  
SignMaker then they are written in SWML which means they can be that is why we have the huge job of re-typing around  
3000 of the signs in the ASL SignPuddle, changing them from the  
Graphics Only to the SWML...a huge job and one of the reasons I could  
not promise you a printed dictionary sorted by SSS sooner...

So maybe you could re-enter those Graphics Only signs in SignMaker  
and then delete the Graphics Only ones, once the new ones can replace
