The work you are doing with the Universal Shaping Engine looks very
interesting, to be able to have Signwriting signs clustered properly and
sign text flow outside of the browser in most of the major operating
I have a question if in the meantime the SignWriting 2010 and
sw10.js will it be completely replaced by Sutton SignWriting and
Are you planning on replacing it in SignMaker2015? What plans do
you have for SignMaker 2015?
Wish you the best with your projects.
