Hello SW List Members, and Siv!
Thank you for this message...I guess you mean that you want to place 
another dot, showing bending of the fingers another time, on your sign 
for FROG? The dot is used in the sign for "quote"...that is true... I 
will be happy to show you how to write that in the next message...

Yes...Penny is right, that we can search for specific repetitive 
motions in SignBank right now...In SignBank 9, which is "Search for Any 
Sign with this symbol"...you can choose one of the repetitive motion 
symbols and then search the whole database for any sign that has that 
symbol...you can also do that with groups of symbols too...

When it comes to SignBank, the most important thing right now is to add 
signs, so you have a database to search! Have you been entering signs 
into SignBank, Siv? Are you using SignWriter Java?

Val ;-)
