Hi Val,
    I don't know yet.  I would have to get a closer look at the file formats.  I was thinking maybe I should implement a keyboard layout for writing signs in my program more similar to the SignWriter DOS and SignWriter Tiger.
    What does everybody think of the idea?
    My program already has keyboard support but the design is more visual and is distinct from what users of SignWriter DOS where used to.

Wonderful, Jonathan - do you think you can coordinate your new program, SignWriter Studio, with any of the other SignWriter programs, such as SignWriter DOS? Any coordination of any kind, would be most helpful... SignWriter DOS and SignWriting Java are still used around the world ... Val ;-)

Thank Val and Steve,
    I got SignWriter DOS working.  I had difficulty at first with the keyboard typing in DOSBOX to get to the dirrectory to run the program.  Especially the backslash and tilde but found the ascii values (Alt-Gr 92) \ and (Alt-Gr 126) ~

Yes...SignWriter DOS is a fully-functioning program, by installing DosBox first, and then installing SignWriter DOS, and it runs on Macs and all Windows platforms too...DoSBox has made SignWriter Dos a living program all these years...


http://www.dosbox.com/


And there are also other related SignWriter programs you can download ...Go to:

SignWriting Downloads

http://www.signwriting.org/downloads/


and to download the different SignWriter programs ...they are numbers 5, 6, 7, and 11 on the downloads page...

SignWriter Java is a fully functioning version of SignWriter DOS that was transferred into Java, that works on Mac and Windows without DosBox...but it cannot print. Other than that it runs well without any other program to help it. Many programmers tried to get it to print, but all informed us that it would have to be completely re-programmed and re-built to print, and that is why we are so looking forward to your SignWriter Studio, Jonathan...

SignWriter Tiger, by Daniel Noelpp Ly, really is a beautiful attempt to re-design SignWriter in Java (Tiger version)...the first version I tried was so impressive... 

      
What where your favorite features?

    
but sadly it was never completed...However, Daniel has been so kind to keep his web site up, and you can download the source code..SW Tiger would have given us writing in vertical columns as well as horizontal writing..

And then of course there is SignWriter Python, which gives special add-ons for SignWriter DOS, for larger dictionaries and so forth...by Lars Majewski...

Thanks to everyone who has worked on SignWriter programs!

Val ;-)

 You should be able to run SignWriter Dos through an application called DosBox.  If you can't find a 64-bit version of DosBox, try running the regular DosBox in Win98 mode.
