Hello Everyone!
Let me share with you, how I personally edit documents using SignText  

1. Cherie writes the document Baa Baa Black Sheep in SignText
2. Cherie sends the document to us with SignText Email
3. I read the document in my email program
4. I click on the "Load Into SignText" line at the bottom of the  
email message

5. Firefox automatically opens Cherie's document in SignText on my  
6. The sentence partially loads into SignText...I cannot see the full  
sentence because it didn't load every sign completely.
7. I press the Options Button immediately and I bookmark (save)  
Cherie's document so I have a copy of the original no matter what
8. I then open the sentence in the SignText Editor again, make some  
changes, then bookmark my second sentence with the changes
9. I send my second version as a SignText email to Cherie to show her  
some of my ideas

and so on...

Just thought I would share my way of editing with SignText 1.0!

it works well for me...I have enjoyed editing the Bible passages that  
way too...

Val ;-)
