Of course I know that, Kelly Jo. Most people do not read manuals. I  
do not take offense at that at all...

But you are giving yourself unnecessary frustration if you do not  
read them...

It is a shame you are not using the SignoEscritura textbook! Find  
Steve and Dianne Parkhurst at SIL immediately and ask to purchase a  
copy of their English version, and please tell them that I am  
planning to telephone them shortly...

And you can download almost the complete English textbook...one  
chapter at a time, right now on the web. It is excellent:

SignoEscritura in English

It has been available in English for several years on my web sites,  
and also available from the Parkhursts for more years than that.  
Stefan used their English book to learn SignWriting...a lot of people  
do. I would love to sell it for them on our web site, but that is my  
fault...I haven't asked them if they want that, but please tell them  
that they would be helping the SignWriting community so much, if we  
could...and we can talk about it...whatever they want...

Maybe others would understand the Rotation Symbols better if they  
read the SignoEscritura textbook...

Sometimes, once in a long while, I read manuals, and find the answers  
to my questions...and it makes me feel so much better!
