Hello Maria!

The answer is YES! Just continue to work in SignPuddle just as you  
always have. You will be using the ISWA without even realizing it ;-)

Everything you have written in the past, in SignPuddle, has  
automatically converted over to the new symbols of the ISWA, so the  
conversion was automatic.

What does the new ISWA 2008 give you?

Many things. One is that the symbols are better organized.

There used to be 50 groups of symbols in the old IMWA. Now there are  
30 groups in the ISWA.

You will notice the difference when you create a new sign in  
SignMaker, or a new document in will see these 30 groups:
