Hi Ron -
Of course I can see why you ask for this feature! It would be great if it
were possible, but as you can see by an earlier message from Trevor, who is
a programmer, that specific request is technically not available to us at
However, I think you can start a single web page for your congregation. You
can use one of the excellent web design editing programs on the market,
such as FrontPage for Windows, or PageMill for the Macintosh. Create your
first web page - making it very simple.
Once you take that first step, then you can learn how to turn your present
SW documents, typed with SignWriter 4.3, into .gif files, which can then be
used on your web page.
I have never taken one class in web design, but I have done web design now
since September 1996, and have enjoyed every minute of it! I bought
PageMill for the Macintosh and I read the manual carefully. From there I
had the skills to start. So the web design editing programs on the market
today are terrific and give us great opportunities :-)
Now I must get back to SW font design - I am working with a file of over
1000 symbols at the moment!
Many blessings -
