SignWriting List

Thanks Jerry!

Actually, we have not gotten to dictionaries yet - that is much more
complicated I believe and we have to talk about that later. Right
now, I want to see some of those tiny symbols in Format 3, or 4 or
5...and then move on to the PDFing of dicitonaries, which are printed
from an add-on program called the Dictionary Manager in SignWriter.

The defective symbols you mentioned above means there was something
wrong with the PDF process, but not when we print from laser printers
directly in postscript from SignWriter. The symbols are always
flawless and unblemished. I think we need to try for better
resolution when we make the PDF files - I still have to learn all
