Hi Kelly Jo!
It is really fun to try all the possible combinations of features,  
for creating different styles of PDFs, isn't it? I played for hours  
myself with creating PDFs in color, going sideways, going down, with  
lines, without lines, different many choices!

The five sentences for the O Canada document could be put together  
into one document, before you create the PDF. That way you will have  
one PDF instead of five...

There are two ways to put the five sentences together, into one long  
document, before creating the PDF...

1. paste them together in SWML, and then create the PDF
(instructions will be coming)

2. make 5 for each sentence...and then download a freeware  
program that makes it possible to combine PDFs..there are several  
programs like that for Windows and Mac

Anyway..that is one of my next update our SignText Manual  
with instructions on this...

Thank you for the O Canada document, Kelly Jo...I look forward to  
studying it shortly ;-)

Val ;-)
