SignWriting List
April 20, 2012

Hi Ingvild!
Your old SignWriter DOS files that you gave us to enter into SignPuddle held a lot of signs, and some files were dictionaries that had duplicates from other files we had already entered - I am sorry there are so many duplicates. Also, we ran out of funding to continue the copying from your documents into SignPuddle, but I think we did a lot of work for you nonetheless and now deleting extras should be easier than having to add all those file yourself.

The mountain of work that you did over the years is quite remarkable. I would like to post the SignWriter DOS files on the web under SignWriting in Norway, because I think those old files are still valuable and there are still people who use SignWriter DOS today, using DOSBox. So since we already discussed placing your dictionaries online, I assume that is ok with you for me to post the files you gave us?

Now in regards to editing, I do not know why your old login is not there right now, but I suggest that you start a new login with a new password, and then I will give that new login Editor status for Norway…do that and then write to me to tell me - you will be able to do everything again as before...

Val ;-)

Hi Steve and Val and all,

I have trouble editing signs in the NTS (NSL) puddle, even if I am proberly signed in. I only get the options 'kopier tegn' or 'customize sign'. As many signs are now wntered witout spelling, and in multiple copies, I need to weed the dicctionary ... even if I do not have the time for the first few weeks now.

(For a future version, I would also love to have an oportunity to search by tag, or some similar option)

Yes, Charles is right about this - SignPuddle is designed for Firefox. Once Steve finishes the PersonalPuddle 2.0 software, for those who use SignPuddle offline, I believe he will be working on cross-platform issues with SignPuddle - right now, SignPuddle's SignMaker and SignText do not work in Google Chrome and Safari, but they will later…so right now, use Firefox…

To the best of my knowledge, only Mozilla Firefox works. Platform issues are still being worked through.

Hi Steve, 
I seem to be having trouble making the signs appear after I drag and drop them 
into the editing box area while using Google Chrome.  It works fine on Mozilla 
Firefox, so perhaps this is just an issue my browser hasn't worked out yet.  

(My initial inquiry was about deleting an erroneous entry, but I believe that was 
fixed by simply logging back in.)  Many thanks!
