Subject: SignWriter 4.3...Moving an Entire Sign
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 -
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
1. In the third manual, "SignWriter-At-A-Glance" 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:
Ctrl-Home - centers the sign
Ctrl-left arrow - moves sign to the left
Ctrl-right arrow - moves sign to the right
Ctrl-up arrow - moves sign up
Ctrl-down arrow - moves sign down
Hope this helps!
