[sw-l] Signs in living color

Hi Stuart,

The short answer is yes.  Signs could be colored when pulling from the
dictionary.  I would only need some rules to apply.

However, 2 dictionaries still have many signs that are images only:  sgn-US
(ASL) and sgn-DE.  Image only signs can not be loaded into SignMaker.
Neither could image only signed be colored.

  Could it be possible, instead of saving color to the dictionary, to apply
color to the sign when pulling from the dictionary? Or alternatively, for
teaching purposes, could it be possible to have a way to assign colors to
different categories of symbols (i.e., handshapes, contact, face, etc.) and
then it would color the sign appropriately? That might be a handy tool for
teachers or people developing teaching materials?

  Just some thoughts.

    Hi list,

    Trying to solve a problem with transparency, I found out how to color

    I put this into SignMaker for international signs.  You can play around
and tell me what you think.


    Pressing the Color special command will popup a window where you can
pick a color for the selected symbol.


    The symbols loose their color when saving to the dictionary.  However,
if people find this usefull, I can update the script that saves the sign to
the dictionary so that the signs include color.
