Hi Daniele Giacomini,

Thanks for the questions, clarification and feedback.

SignPuddle 3 is quickly approaching a beta release.  Last week, I found 
an issue that needed addressed.  I should be able to fix it this week.

This is already possible on my development machine.  It will be publicly 
available soon.  Additionally, you will be able to link directly to 
signmaker and you will be able to include the sign to load in the URL.

This link doesn't work yet, but it will in the next release.

Thanks for mentioning this.  I will add this to the beta release and it 
will be available as well.

SignPuddle 2 can only export the Unicode sequences.

To get an image out of SignPuddle 2, create the sign in SignMaker.  
Click the Add to SignPuddle button.  On the save page, instead of 
clicking on a flag, scroll down to the "Other Sign Options".  Click the 
"Customize Sign" button.

You can get the Unicode sequences and images from SignText in SignPuddle 
2 similar to the above.  After you write the sign text document, click 
the save button.  Scroll down past the flags to the "Other sign text 
options section".  Use ColumnMaker for images and use "Data Formats" for 
the Unicode sequences.  Use the "SWU" button which stands for 
SignWriting in Unicode.

The International Sign Language dictionary is available here:

It does not have a flag Icon yet.  SignPuddle 3 uses language codes and 
country codes.  Unfortunately, there is not country code for 
international or world.  I used "QU" as user assigned, but this doesn't 
feel right.  I may switch it to "WO" with a blue flag with a world in 
the center like in SignPuddle 2.
