Hi Steve,


c o n g r a t u l a t i on s .... this is wonderful!   Juchuuuuu...


Is there a chance to  check this option online? Can you offer a link so that I can write a short document in order to check it?


What a gift ... and we need horizontal writing for the students at school to improve spoken language competence.


It is the best way to offer bilingual documents and to support especially young students and beginners...


That is the reason why our delegs-editor is such an important development ...


Stefan ;-)

Betreff: Horizontal writing


Hi Stefan and list,

I've been working on the SignWriting Image Server.  I updated the display function to output horizontal writing.

I tried out a new style of layout for horizontal writing and I'd like your feedback.  Here's the output for 4 signs and 1 punctuation.

This uses a technique similar to vertical writing because it uses lanes and offsets.  There are 2 lanes: a middle lane and an upper head lane.  Punctuation is always centered in the middle lane.  The second and the fourth signs are centered in the middle lane.  The first and third signs are centered in the head lane.  Any sign that has head symbols is vertically offset upwards into the head lane.

Signs written in the overhead view may cause complications, but otherwise I think the idea is solid.

Thoughts or feedback would be appreciated.
