Hi List,

I have an updated version of SignText that is ready for download.  It 
uses the latest version of the IMWA.  The interface has been update to 
match the current version of SignMaker.  And the on screen display 
correctly centers the signs in the correct lane by head position.

SignText has many uses. The major advantage of SignText is that it can 
be used offline without an Internet connection.   With SignText, you can 
explore the IMWA, create a list of signs to import into the SignPuddle 
dictionary tools, and write SignWriting text with lanes.

To review verticle writing with lanes, check out SignWriting.org:

Specifically, consider the finished sentence on the fourth page:

Please try the release and provide feedback.

I will be releasing a finished version of SignText next month that uses 
the soon to be released version of the IMWA.  I will update the display 
and add simple editing function for the resulting text.
