Hello André,
     What do you mean by "I tried sign bank 85 but I could never upload 
the Québec Sign language files I copied from Sign puddle".  I was 
thinking that maybe you mean't the signpuddle number of the puddle where 
in the url sgn=85, but that is India's signpuddle. The  for 
"Dictionnaire Quebec" is sgn=47.

     I imagine you mean that you downloaded the puddle from SignPuddle 
and couldn't import it.  Is this what you meant?

I just imported it and it worked fine for me.  Let me know where you are 
getting stuck.

If you meant uploading to SignPuddle then the bad news it that 
SignPuddle can only import one sign or document at a time.

Exporting from SignWriter Studio to PersonalPuddle  and vice versa is 
much more feasible though not perfect.
