Nigel -
If you are using SignWriter DOS, in SignWriter DOS you can use the
Export Command to export the SGN file to BMP format. Once you have the
BMPs, you can open the BMPs in a paint or draw program and then
re-format them to jpeg or whatever...If you need step by step
instructions, I can send them to write again if you need more

There may also be another SWML alternative, but first I must ask our
programmers on the SW list... What would you all suggest for automatic
conversion of SGN files now?...I know your work keeps progressing!

Val ;-)
