Hello André Lemyre!
I am happy to see the many signs you have added to the Quebec Sign Language Dictionary:
Now that we can search by Source, I was able to find all the signs you have written by searching for your name in the Search for Source field…

Your description of writing left-handed signing and right handed-signing, and Receptive and Expressive is really interesting. Your perception is correct - you are welcome to write as you choose.

However, for your own personal use, or for some exceptions in research, the other modes are fine too -
SignWriting is flexible. I believe that is why it is used so widely now -
