Hi List,

I have a great new feature ready for SignText: Print to PDF.  This 
feature will only work online.


This icon appears on the option screen, directly under the SignMail 
icon.  If you are using a previously downloaded copy of SignText, you 
will not see this icon.  You can either press the Display Icon to go to 
the online version or you can download SignText again.

The Print to PDF page has many options. 

Document Name
This is the name of the PDF file itself.

Page Format
This determines the size of the PDF pages:  A3, A4, A5, US Letter, US 
Legal.  A4 is the most common format world wide.

Page Layout
Landscape or Portrait

Sign Size
Normal or small sized symbols are used.  The small size can fit more on 
a page, but I'm still working on the quality and transparency issues.

The default is black and white.  If you select colorize, the signs will 
be displayed in the standard colors.

Column Lines & Horizontal Lines
These options will draw a box around each column of sign text.

Lane Offset
The lane offset determines how far the left and right lanes are offset 
from the center lane.

Column Padding
The column padding puts space around each column of sign text.

Sign Spacing
The sign spacing determines how much space to put between each sign in 
the columns.

When in doubt, experiment.  Have fun!

PS - SWML for Power Users
At the bottom of the page, you'll see a section of SWML.  Regular users 
can ignore this.

The print to PDF page creates PDFs from SWML, so if you change the SWML 
on the page you'll change the  PDF.  There are many possibilities.  The 
most common action will probably be to combine multiple SignText documents.
