[sw-l] export from one dictionnary to another

Hi Anny,

The dictionary Export dumps the entire sign list into SWML-S.

The dictionary Import uses SWML-S.  It first displays the signs contained in
the SWML-S.  You then have the option to add any sign to the dictionary or
load a sign into SignMaker.

You can do this now, you'll just have to ignore the signs you don't want.
You can also edit the SWML-S to only include the signs you want.  It's not
that hard if you're not afraid of a little markup.

In the future, I will improve the export.  It will allow for a list of
signs, or a date range.  The import also need to be improved.

Alternatively, you could use SignText to create the signs and then import
the signs into multiple dictionaries.

Let me know if you have any questions,

Subject: [sw-l] export from one dictionnary to another


I did enter a few geographic sign in the international atlas...
yesterday (Vaud, Lausanne, Neuchâtel... and my name (Anny))...

I was just wondering if there's a way to export sign from one
dictionnary to  another... it would be then really simple to enter
signs in each specific dictionnary and then export the one we need in
the "Atlas"

+ for exmple there are much similarities between ASL and Swiss french
LSF... so if I could exporte from ASL into swiss french LSF it would
save  a lot of time!

Let me know
