Ahh... yes, I see. I did have a lot of trouble seeing what she was doing.
Thank you! :-)

Okay, thanks. :-) Good to know!

Those give me so much trouble... and I know I'm not the only one!

You're quite right... my mistake!

You're right... topic marker... I have the brow raise in my handwritten
notes, but obviously I forgot to put it into SignText! Oops...
>I saw the facial expression and the sign in the last column as one sign.

And I thank you for them! :-)
