Thank you for the new beta 4.01. I have downloaded it on my Windows XP laptop, and thank you for the walkthroughs - those are helpful. I enjoyed looking at the sample dictionary...I like the way it lists the written sign, along with a place for illustrations and photos and sources...nice design...and when you place nothing in the Gloss Search field in the dictionary, and then press Enter, that gives you a listing of every entry in the dictionary...a little like placing an asterisk in a search field to give you all entries...
And I am sure the walkthroughs will really help me later, when I try to create my own little dictionary and document using SignWriter Studio....I will get back to you with more feedback after I do that...
I had no trouble downloading it and opening it...very easy, and your web site looks great:

> According to the feedback I received from my last beta version, there was a big problem running SignWriter Studio with a limited Windows user account. So I have made the changes. So far I have tested under XP but still need for it to be tested under Vista and Windows 7. The changes I made should make it possible to run the program as a non administrator on Vista and Windows 7 too. I am looking forward to your feedback either whether it is positive or whether you detect a problem.
