SignWriting List

Hello Steve and Andre -

We are so fortunate that Steve gives us such excellent technical support - You are doing such an important job, Steve - thank you!

And by the way, generally it is a good idea to use Firefox, if you can, when using SignPuddle. SignPuddle was designed for Firefox, and the other web browsers do not necessarily all work the same...

Thank you for fixing SignPuddle to work with Internet Explorer on Windows, Steve - that is a good one to have working for us...

Safari and Google Chrome are two web browsers that can read SignPuddle files fine, but SignMaker for composing new signs does not function in either Safari or Google Chrome (at the moment ;-))

So Firefox is working great and we all love SignPuddle 1.6 here - I have had several people tell me that they like some of the additions and new user interface...

Val ;-)
