SignWriting List
March 2, 2006


Getting to Know the Screen Design
Look at the numbers in the diagram below...

1. Symbol Palette
Click on symbols to find subsets of symbols. Then drag symbols to the  
Sign Box.

2. Sign Box
Create signs in this box, by dragging symbols from the Symbol Palette.

3. Command Buttons
Change symbols. Add completed signs to the Sentence Column, by  
clicking on Center Lane Button.

4. Sign Sentence Column
Signs are listed here in a vertical sentence.

5. Text Editing Buttons
These little buttons appear to the left of a sign, once a sign is  
placed in the Sentence Column. They are used to improve the sentence.  
You can move a sign up or down, to the left or right Lanes, replace a  
sign, load a sign back into the SignBox for editing, delete a sign,  
and insert new signs.

6. Options Button
When the SignSentence is finished, click on the Options Button. This  
will take you to a new Options Window. In the Options Window, you can  
display the sentence, save it as a bookmark, add the individual signs  
into a SignPuddle Online Dictionary, send the sentence in email, and  
other options.
