SignWriter Studio has had a lot of work been done on it's
database and other base code over the past year. It is now using
ISWA 2010, new database format, it also now runs on .Net 4.0. The
foundations have been laid to import and export Unicode SPML files.
So because of these changes, we haven't had a version people can
play around with and give us feed back. Well, until now. http://www.signwriterstudio.com/download/SignWriter%20Studio%20Beta%126.96.36.199.exe
If you don't have .Net Framework 4.0 installed on your computer, you
will be prompted to install it. It is a free download and install
but may take a few minutes, especially on slower connections.
In SignWriter Studio
The signlist options is disabled, more work needs to be done on
The dictionary is functional. One known bug is that it will give an
error if you haven't chosen a valid dictionary file first. A sample
one comes with the download. From the menu select "Open SignWriter
Studio File". Look in the folder you installed the software. Choose
the file Sample.SWS. Then you shouldn't have any problems trying
out the dictionary. If you double click on a sign writting you will
get the SignWriter Editor.
Also on at least one computer, even after following the previous, I
get a error cannot open database. I am still looking into it.
The documents, are semi functional. I left it enabled for your
viewing. We will need some more work done on this too in future
Please let me know any errors you may get, ideas or other feedback.
