Hi Andre -
We need to ask Steve why you cannot see the Color Palette in  
SignPuddle...that may be your web browser...I don't know. I wish you  
could just reverse your screen to see everything in Windows XP...

However, did you know that you can also customize the look of a sign  
(a picture or graphic) once it is in Microsoft Word?

In Microsoft Word...

1. Once the sign is in Word, click on the sign in the Word document.  
A little box forms around the sign, which means you have "selected  
the sign as a graphic file" inside Word...

2. Then under the Format Menu, choose Picture...You can change the  
color of the sign and its background color (the box around the sign)  
to different colors inside Word...I do not know all the features of  
Word will need to test it a little...

The color palette you refer to in Word that shows up, is for text,  
but right now, the signs from SignPuddle are considered  
they are two different formats in Word...
