> Thank you for the cute animation once again, and also the mention of the SignWriter Studio coordination with SignPuddle - I talked with Steve Slevinski about this around 10 days ago, and here is what I understood (correct me if I am wrong, Steve)...
> 1. A new version of SignPuddle, version 3.0, is under development and Steve is testing it now - After 3.0 is posted online and is working for all of us, Steve will focus on the issues of export and import to improve the coordination with SignWriter Studio...
> 2. Right now, using SignPuddle 2.0, there is a work-around for those files imported from SignWriter Studio that are imported as SignText instead of SignMaker files (dictionary entries)…
> Perhaps you already know this workaround? I can’t remember if we discussed this already, so please excuse if this is a repeat from an older message…
> In SignPuddle, when a person is logged in, under the SignText entries, there is a button called “Copy Sign From SignText”, and when you click on the button and copy the sign and place it back into the same SignPuddle file, and give it a the same name etc, it becomes an individual sign for dictionaries and can be searched and sorted - I have attached a diagram for those who are interested to see what I am talking about - See attached...
> But all this should in time be fixed through the new version of SignPuddle 3.0, although it will take some time -
