Hello All…Ingvild, Jonathan, Steve, Alan -
Ingvild was concerned because of a deadline of turning in
work for a publication by tomorrow, so Ingvild asked to Skype
with me a few minutes ago and I wasn't sure we could figure
anything out, but we did come up with one solution…within
Here it is:
1. Once you have the SVG Refinement completed for the columns
in ColumnMaker and it looks like beautiful SVG - the problem is
getting it into other applications after that -
soooo… we did this…
1. Right click on each column of SVG in ColumnMaker
2. Choose "Save Frame" and then "Save Frame As"
3. Change the name "glyphogram" or "glyphogram.svg" to the
name for each column…like column1.svg or something like that…
4. it is no saved to your desktop or wherever you saved it
5. then how does one get svg into other programs? for
example, Photoshop cannot open sag I believe, but Illustrator
can… a web browser will open sag, but perhaps Microsoft Word
cannot? these issues are on the other end because sag is
Here is a screen capture of what I did for Ingvild…if you can
make this easier, Steve, that will be great - right now we need
to instruct people how to do this, and thank you also Jonathan,
for your suggestion, which seems great to me too - can the url
bring the graphic into another program like Word?

We can get this done. Can you point to the source material?
If the default ColumnMaker isn't adequate, I can help make
something work. I know that Alan Post has experience making
SVG with SignPuddle data. If he sees this, maybe he can

I only know of this way. There might be a more
straight forward way to do it though. I hope this get you
out of the bind.
Once you have the the SVG showing in the column
maker. Right click in Firefox and choose show source. At
the bottom of the source you will something similar to.
It's underlined. If you have more than one column, you might have more than one of these.
Click on it and it will open the svg document.
Save the file. Make sure to put an svg extention on it like so "myfilename.svg"
To test it open it in FireFox.

can anyone help me? I need to be able to bring the
beautiful svg-figures from Column maker to anywhere
else. I have written an article for an international
Terminology journal. The article is accepted, but they
need the written signs to be at least 300 dpi, and
preferably svg. I cannot figure out how to capture the
figures I made with 'translate - column maker -
customise'. I only have a lousy screen capture
feature, that makes a jpg from the screen cut, withy
too little solution. Bringing this into Phoshop does
not help. - The journal needed the figures yeasterday,
I said I hoped they would be ready tomorrow.
Please help, anyone,
