Hello Edina and Everyone!
Thanks for this message. I am glad your work with SignPuddle and
Microsoft Word has gotten easier for you.
Yes...that grey or black box that sometimes appears when dragging or
copying signs from SignPuddle to another program, is happening because
of the transparent background...so getting rid of the transparency is
the key...sometimes we need the transparency and sometimes we don't,
so many thanks to Steve, SignPuddle software developer, for giving us
As to why it gives us a transparency sometimes, when we don't want it,
has to do with old and new software, and also some programs are
different than others...I am on a Mac and use an up-to-date version of
Microsoft Word for the Mac, but even on the Mac, I have these problems
with an old version of Adobe InDesign that needs to be updated...so
keeping our software and computers up to date is part of the issue,
and we can't all afford to buy new software or computers...so we just
work around the issues that vary from time to time...
So keep asking questions and I am sure we can resolve them, one way or
Regarding checking the videos for your signs on http://www.jelszotar.hu
...that poses a different problem...because I do not know the
Hungarian spoken language, I found it very hard to find the videos for
your specific signs...and like always, I am juggling 100 jobs at a
time, so maybe later I can try to find them again...sorry for the delay!
If you can figure out how you can give us an exact link to a video, or
get permission to post the video itself to me or the List, that would
make things go faster!
Have a great day everyone -
