Hi Val,

it does take one night to include new signs from SignPuddle to delegs-Editor. – Short enough to do my homework for tomorrow – smile.

Hello Stefan and Stuart -

Thank you for explaining how to write a sign in the Delegs Editor. So how do I go back and forth between SignPuddle and Delegs? For example, here is what I just tried:


1. I went to:


Delegs Editor Software



2. I clicked on the Delegs Editor button on the far right


3. I then clicked on GebärdenSchrift-Editor ausprobieren


4. The Editor program opens:




5. and I can type spoken language to bring in SignWriting signs…and choose from a pull-down menu of multiple choices…


but how do I bring in a brand new sign from SignPuddle, which I might need to create? How does Delegs Editor connect to SignPuddle? If I go to SignPuddle and use SignMaker, I am required to save it in SignPuddle…does the Delegs Editor automatically include any new additions to a SignPuddle file?


Val ;-)

Hi Stuart,


thanks for your attention. Well – right now we change anything we want to change within SignPuddle. One night later we can use this given sign in delegs.  On the other hand the wonderful softareprogrammer gang will be able to develop our own editor ( compared to the signmaker) In the futute you will be able to pick a sign, to open the Editor and to change it the way you want to ...


All the best

Valerie sent me the link to your editor. Very impressive. 


I have a question though. Suppose I wanted to pick a certain sign, but I needed to modify the facial expression or body movements for that sign. How would I do so? I saw how to pick a different variant of a sign. I didn't see how I could take a specific sign already selected, and modify that sign to add facial expressions, body movements, or body shifts that may be necessary.









Val ;-)
