I can understand that and it ±± the same with me. Just in the very beginning
the dictionaries are a precious gift!!
The people who pioneered to write their version did a great job to give all
of us a hint how to use the special symbols or how to arrange the various
aspects of a sign. I learned very much from that.
Today I feel independent and realize that sometimes I like more to write the
symbols on my own instead of copying them from the dictionary but this
takes a lot of practice before !!
It ±± almost the same as learning to play an instrument or any other art !!
And that is one of the reasons that I love this writing of comics and
animated gifs so much you really get into this typing -method You develop a
cognitive map abut the possibilities of the keyboard using all the various
modes A, F, S --
There is one big problem that oft happens if beginners start to work with
SW - for the one or aother reason they happen to open the SW - program a
second or even third time. So now the program indicates - dictionary not
found - no problem - shut all SW - programs down (save!! ha ) and start
In the worst case you should look up in the Explorer (under Windows) - there
you find a list of all your SW - files and there you should find your set
(!!!!! hopefully) of dic and din files.
Another problem may occur: If you have saved your SW - version on CD and
reinstall (copy) it to your computer be sure to check the status of the
files. They shouldn ±² be "schreibgesch ÿÿ zt" but archiv- files !!
All the best and good luck for your next projects.
