Hello Everyone, and Stuart!

Thanks for this information, Stuart. So you are saying that Adobe
Acrobat 4.0 may possibly not have a way to make a postscript file
from a DOS file, without other programs? I am surprised...but you may
be right. I will look into this ;-)

Your idea about asking a programmer to help me tweak SignWriter is a
nice one, except I have no programmer. Work on SignWriter 5.0 has
stopped, because I have no money at this time.

Some wonderful programming work is being done in Brazil, but they are
so busy, I doubt if they can do the tweaking you mention, but you
never know - I can ask them -

Good luck with your SignWriting workshops, Stuart - I sent you a box
of SignWriting literature to distribute to the participants - did you
receive it?

Thanks once again for your help and advice -

Val ;-)
