after trying you procedure with no success
I sent your message to my friend Anita who tried it as well... NO  
WAY... we can't copy from PUddle 1 into Puddle 1.5

can you do a transfer again for our dictionnary ?  (whatever the date  
you chose will be fine... just let us know.... so that we know from  
when on we have to use only SignPuddle 1.5)
if this would be possible it would be GREAT

just let us know if it's Ok for you and when suits you best

If not I'll rewrite all the signs tha have been added lately (the  
only thing problematic being we've modified some signs... and I'm not  
sure to remember all we've done these last days)
