Hello Stefan and Stuart -
Thank you for explaining how to write a sign in the Delegs Editor. So how do I go back and forth between SignPuddle and Delegs? For example, here is what I just tried:

1. I went to:

Delegs Editor Software

2. I clicked on the Delegs Editor button on the far right

3. I then clicked on GebärdenSchrift-Editor ausprobieren. 

4. The Editor program opens:

5. and I can type spoken language to bring in SignWriting signs…and choose from a pull-down menu of multiple choices…

but how do I bring in a brand new sign from SignPuddle, which I might need to create? How does Delegs Editor connect to SignPuddle? If I go to SignPuddle and use SignMaker, I am required to save it in SignPuddle…does the Delegs Editor automatically include any new additions to a SignPuddle file?

Val ;-)

On the other hand the wonderful softareprogrammer gang will be able to develop our own editor ( compared to the signmaker) In the futute you will be able to pick a sign, to open the Editor and to change it the way you want to ...

I saw how to pick a different variant of a sign. I didn't see how I could take a specific sign already selected, and modify that sign to add facial expressions, body movements, or body shifts that may be necessary.
