For now, while we are waiting for Steve's new features, there are  
some things you can do, Kathleen.

1. You can email the sentence to yourself! Then print it from your  
email software, like you would print any email message.

2. Do a screen capture of the sentence in the Display Window.

Here is how to make a screen capture:

Shift-Command-3...captures the entire screen
Shift-Command-4...captures just the area you select with a cross-hair  

"Print Screen Key" captures the entire screen
"Alt-Print Screen Key" captures just the Window you are in.

3. Once you have a screen capture...that becomes a graphics file and  
you bring the graphics file into any Microsoft Word document...

I haven't added this instruction to the SignText Manual yet...

Want to try number 1 above and see if you can print from an email  
message to yourself? Try it and write to tell us what happened!

The SignMail icon is in the Options section of SignText...

Val ;-)
