Hello Lucyna and Everyone!
Oh yes. I know what you are talking about. Creating documents from  
SignPuddle, in another program, like Microsoft Word, works well. You  
can copy and paste, or drag and drop, signs directly from the  
SignPuddle dictionary into the Word document. However, you cannot do  
that for the Punctuation Symbols alone...

There are three ways to solve this problem...

1. Go to the SymbolBank Online Database:

See attached diagram. You click on a Category Name and choose  
Punctuation. Wait a minute. It is a little slow because you are  
accessing a web server that is located in my home, right next to my  
desk where I work!! It should list all of the Punctuation symbols for  
you...Then you can copy and paste or drag and drop the Punctuation  
Symbols into your Word document...continued next message...
