Me too Charles!  I really don't care for the drag-and-drop system, since I 
work on a laptop using a touch pad which (I'm finding) is even slower than a 
mouse.  I wish I'd had the chance to use SignWriter DOS.  Oh well . . .  SW 
Editor is better than nothing.  Still, I'm looking forward to being able to 
type SW (beyond the fingerspelling font in MS Word, that is).
