Hello Everyone, and Mark:
Yes. There is a way. One of the reasons that I have not gotten to the
symbol construction rules, that you and Hector have requested, is
because I am working on a new feature in SignBank that will improve
exporting symbols and signs...so it is funny you are asking all the
questions that I am trying to solve - ha!

Right now, we must work with the SignBank version that is available for
download on the web...Here are instructions, assuming you are using the
Runtime version:


1. Open SignBank with the 54321 password for Editors.
2. Then open SymbolBank
3. To copy symbols, you MUST be in the first layout of SymbolBank,
which is named SSS-2002. The name of the layout is in the top left
