  1. Hi,  How do I get MS powerpoint?  I want to make signs from scratch,  Ive done this already in PAINTS on another laptop,  but soda pop destroyed it,  I cant remember if I had Powerpoint or not, I had the fonts though.  Thanks for this great video!!

  2. Nice signs:) I also enjoy the highway gothic fonts over clearview as well.
    If you still make signs, I have a challenge for you;)
    Try to make a sign that is like one of the ones you see in Tokyo, Japan at certain points on the expressways there.
    Those signs are fairly large and have a bunch of lines that go out in different directions (some of the lines curve or is circular depending on the layout of the section of the expressway system you are at). Also the lines (routes) only have a white outline and is black inside. This is because sections actually light up depending on traffic congestion. When I Google translated a page that was about those signs, it translates to "graphic information board" or "graphic figure board" I've also seen them called "junction figure board"

    What I would like to see is for you to make one of these signs, but instead of it being Japanese, make the sign as what one of these signs would look like, if they were to start putting them here in the USA.

  3. If you click on an item such as the "white line shape" in your sign. Go to Format in the ribbon menu. Go to Align then to Grid Settings and turn off "Snap to Grid" you can more easily align your shapes manually. This stops them from snapping to the grid which is part of Power Point. You can also turn on and or resize the grid for other uses. Just a faster way to align objects by eye. Drawing a parallel and or vertical line on the page, aligning the edge of 1 object over the line then move the second object up to the line so as they overlap also allows for better object positioning. Just delete the lines after.  Great tutorial.
