Hello Dali and Stefan!
These are good questions, Dali. I am glad you are learning to use SignText in SignPuddle.  Thank you, Stefan, for pointing to this manual. I am glad you feel it is a good one, and thank you for your German translation of the is so valuable.


Dali - Go to page 16 in the manual. It shows the Text Editing Buttons. I will teach you how to use these buttons next message...

I noticed that I can click on the "v" next to the arrows and the "*" symbols so  that I can correct it. and here I face two problems: first, after correcting the sign I have to add it, when it is added it is in the bottom of the signs' list, and I have to click on the arrows to make the corrected sign rise upper and upper till it gets next to the wrong sign, thus I  delete the wrong sign, and the new one replaces it.

Thank you for the answers!!!!! I also have an extra question : ) in the future, will there be a possibility to make signs from the dictionary appear on signtext directly when typing them, instead of rewriting all of the  signs again and again on the signtext???????
