Please look at the attached file....first you will see Stefan's
question and then my answer ;-)
By the way, Stefan, I admire your ingenuity in constructing the
movement symbols as you did! Writing by hand is easy, but SignWriter
4.3 has a limited symbol set and those particular symbols (the
rotation symbols combined with arrows) are not represented on the
SignWriter 4.3 keyboard...so your construction was clever...taking
one symbol and placing it near or on top of the other....smile!
And please notice how I added an arrowhead on each end of the stem
line to show "up and down" with fewer arrows - again that symbol is
not in SignWriter 4.3 ...but when writing by hand there is no
problem. I actually added those arrowheads after I had created the
..GIF, in Photoshop...so I pieced it together too.
As you all know, as soon as I have a programmer full time, there will
be no problem to bring out SignWriter 5.0, which will include all
symbols in the entire system.
Here are my examples:
