Hi Stefan -
Regarding my three other options - SVG is a little different than our PNG options. Dragging and dropping columns when we are using the PNG standard is a different experience than when choosing the SVG and I suspect that computers vary as to how they handle this, so for me, I have been creating the SVG in ColumnMaker and then I take a screen capture, or Print Screen, and from there, it becomes a graphic which I can manipulate in a variety of programs...

One of the other options is to Right-Click on the column and choose to open it as a new web page made for SVG viewing, and from there manipulate it -

I am new to the issues of SVG myself -

I think the real need is for someday, in SignPuddle, if we could print the SVG to PDF right there in ColumnMaker, that would solve the issue -

Anyway - enjoy!

Val ;-)

On the Mac operating system we can also choose to print to PDF from each frame when the printer driver comes up...can you do that? See attached screen capture showing what it looks like when I right-click on a column....
