Hello Anny and Everyone!
What operating system are you using, Anny? Is it Mac OS 9, which is  
an old operating system? Just curious.

Because guess what! I just did it with Mac OS X. I opened Firefox. I  
searched for a sign in SignPuddle. I opened Microsoft Word to a new  
document. I then could drag and drop the sign from SignPuddle,  
directly into Microsoft Word with no problems!

But I am running a modern version of the Mac Operating system...Drag  
and drop is a new software development that came in later  
historically, after Mac OS X was developed, so it is not surprising  
if you cannot do this from Mac OS 9...

Have you upgraded to Mac OS X yet? smile...It would be great if you can!

Val ;-)
