Hello Charles and Anny!
This all depends on the specific computer you are using. I cannot use  
Internet Explorer, on my machine, for example, but if you can, that  
is great!

What operating system are you using, Charles? Windows XP? And what  
version of Microsoft Word?

Anyway, even if you cannot drag and drop, you can still bring signs  
in, from SignPuddle into Microsoft Word...just in another way. While  
in SignPuddle, right-click on the sign, and save it to your desktop.  
Then in Microsoft Word, use the Insert Picture from a File command  
under the Insert Menu in Microsoft Word, and find the file on your  
destop and insert it that way...

So dragging and dropping is a more modern feature, but there are  
other ways to get around it and do the same thing...

Val ;-)
