In time, those signs will be re-done with SignMaker...it is just a 
matter of time...

Login as a Dictionary Editor, search for a sign. If there is no LOAD 
button next to that sign, you know it has to be re-done from 
scratch...All editors can find signs that have no LOAD button, and will 
know those signs have to be re-done in SignMaker. Be sure to delete the 
old one, when you are done adding the new replacement...

So all Editors could work on this right now, if we all had nothing to 
do - ha!! smile...
