QUESTION: Is it possible to move a whole sign with all its pieces to the left or to the right if I have to notice that I do need more space especially at the left side ? Sometimes I´m working for a long time to "draw! ;) a new sign  Stefan ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ANSWER: Yes. You can move an entire sign as a unit in any direction, plus you can also "center a sign". There are two places to find this information in the SignWriter Computer Program Notebook: 1. In the third manual, "SignWriterAtAGlance" on p. 20. 2. In the fourth manual, "the SignWriter Reference Manual" on p. 28 Here are the instructions.... MOVING AN ENTIRE SIGN AS A UNIT When you are typing a sign, sometimes you'll need to move all the symbols in the sign by a certain amount: either to make room for typing a new symbol, or to center the completed sign. To move entire signs, use the following commands: CtrlHome  centers the sign Ctrlleft arrow  moves sign to the left Ctrlright arrow  moves sign to the right Ctrlup arrow  moves sign up Ctrldown arrow  moves sign down Hope this helps! Val ;)
