Hello Stefan!
Great to hear from you. Yes, I agree. They do feel more like a Tongue  
rather than a Lip or Mouth - ha!

Tongues generally rotate is 8 possible directions, where the Mouth  
symbols have a 3-symbol configuration...for example Eyes have BOTH  
Eyes, a LEFT Eye and a RIGHT eye...and I was doing these new symbols  
with a 3-symbol configuration to fit with the way Steve programmed  
SignPuddle mouths...there is a CENTER and a left and right to fit the  

But now that you mention it, I bet we could open these new symbols  
into 8 rotations to fit with Tongues...If we do that, I will have to  
rebundle SignBank but it might be worth it...the Tongues need some  
improvement in other ways anyway, so I will look at Tongues in the  
next few days to see what I can do...this is a software issue and how  
the program functions...

I will show you all tomorrow or the next day, a new idea for the  


Great to have your input - many thanks!

Val ;-)
