SignWriting List
October 19, 2011

Thank you Jonathan, Bill and Andre for posting and testing SignWriter Studio Beta 5.2.

I just downloaded it and opened it fine.  But I am still lost as to how to find actual signs written in SignWriting in the Sample file. It tells me to open another module and then when I do it either tells me that that module is not working yet or there are no signs written there - I realize this seems like a silly problem because I should know better - I have seen the program working well before and I really loved it, so I have great hopes we can reach that stage again -

I suggest, Jonathan, that we make a Skype appointment and together you will teach me what to do step by step and that way you will get specific feedback.

Today the electric company in my area claims they will turn off our electricity for 6 hours for maintenance (smile ;-) so today is not a good day - but write to me privately and we will find a time and get SignWriter Studio working -

And Bill and Andre a special appreciation to both of you - I know how busy you are - thank you for your efforts -

Val ;-)

Hi Andre and Jonathan -

Thank you, Jonathan, for giving us another chance to test SignWriter Studio - and I look forward to testing it later today if possible -

And thank you, Andre, for testing it!

I remember having similar experiences to what Andre experienced - Do you have a sample dictionary that really shows us signs already written, in SignWriter Studio, Jonathan? 

Could you write us exact instructions as to what to do when we open the program?

I know you already have a beautiful Help section and I did read that, but I could not find a sample dictionary or editor that really showed me some signs already written for us -

I will write again when I test it this evening -

Val ;-)

Hi Jonathan and everyone,
    In SignWriter Studio, I clicked on "Open SignWriter file" from the menu select.  There are DN4 and Sample SWS.  I chose the file "Sample SWS".  I read "There are currently no entries in this file. To continue, choose an option from the module menu".  I clicked on OK.  There are dictionary, document and signlists from the module menu.  I chose a dictionary.  I read "Unhanded exception has occured in your application.  If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue.  If you click Quit, the application will close immediately".  I clicked Continue.  In SignWriter Studio Dictionary,  I cannot see a sign image or symbols.  I tried to click double on signwriting (I couldn't find it), I did not get the SignWriter Studio Editor.
    Best regards,
