>> Hello Kathleen, Stefan, Ingvild, and Everyone!
>> I want to thank all of you for being so open to changing and

>> want to thank Stefan, for encouraging me to start teaching again
>> with the eLessons...and Honza too...thanks for that...sometimes I
>> need that encouragement...so I hope you all will keep informing me
>> of what you need...
>> You are right, that new writers would never think of such

>> writing movement...that is good, because as SignWriting spreads in
>> Belgium, Kathleen, newcomers could have an easier experience, if
>> they know these rules in advance...as one of the pioneers, you
>> have to go back to fix the spellings...ugh! smile ;-)
>> Actually, so do we in the US...our ASL SignPuddle needs a lot of
>> cleaning too!!
>> How to make changes in SignPuddle? Here is how I personally do it:
>> 1. I go to Dictionary Editors, and login as an Editor.
>> 2. Then, I scroll up to the top of the Dictionary Editor section
>> to search for the sign I want to clean...let us pretend: I search
>> for the sign HELLO.
>> 3. I find three signs for HELLO...they are HELLO, HELLO_2, HELLO_3.
>> 4. I push the LOAD button for one of them, and sometimes I have to
>> refresh my screen to see the loaded sign...
>> 5. I now have the sign in SignMaker, ready to be changed. I make
>> the change. I save the sign to the dictionary still using the SAME
>> name HELLO.
>> 6. SignPuddle automatically puts a number on the end of it...it
>> becomes HELLO_4.
>> 7. I then click on the Dictionary Editors icon again and once
>> again search for HELLO.
>> 8. Let us imagine I want to replace the first HELLO with the new
>> one I just created...
>> 9. First, I delete the first HELLO.
>> 10. Then I scroll down and find the new HELLO that is named HELLO_4.
>> 11. I Rename that new one, to become HELLO without any number.
>> Push the Rename button.
>> 12. Then press the Refresh button on your browser at least TWO times.
>> 13. Your new sign is now the first one on the list, and is no
>> longer number 4...
>> Everytime you want to replace a sign, you load it, change it, and
>> re-save it with the same name and then go back and delete the
>> original and rename the new one...
>> Hope that helps!
