Subject:  Re: Sending attached files to the SW List


Dear Valerie,

as always - you already took over (ha ha !)
So your explanation is so wonderfull that no additional words are needed -
am I right Henk ?

Well there is one little thing I would like to share!

The new possibilieties with SW44 are great.

You can export the file :

command export: what file - type in the name of your file

here we go : In your folder you will find a series of bmp files of an
outstanding quality. In order to reduce the kp open this bmp in your
grafik-programm and save it as an gif (be sure to reduce colours to black
and white = 2 )

Now you have got a wonderfull numbered list of gifs -- and aīcan attach them
to your email --

Iīm looking forward to reading your version of "frosty"

Havenīt heard from his "mother" for a long time ! Whatīt up ??

All the best

Stefan ;-)

BTW SignWriting is a wonderfull tool at school !!!!!!
