The Signtronix website will have the latest version of your SignX sign programming software.
Within the main programming window of your SignX software click on “bunny” icon to access your graphics
Note: Sometimes the window that pops up doesn’t go directly to your graphics folder. If this occurs, you must do a search of the folder that contains the graphics. To do so, follow these steps:
In the top menu of the SignX software click on “File” then click on “Load”
Browse for the name of the file you want to open and then select it
Click on the “Open” button on the “Load Document” window
Your message will appear on the main programming screen within SignX
In order to have different messages show on your sign you must create “Frames” for each “thought” or graphic or animation you want displayed on your sign. Each frame may contain a single word or an entire sentence if you want to scroll the words.
Here is how you add multiple frames to your message file:
The SignX software does not create new graphics. If you wish to create new graphics you must use another software that enables the creation of graphics or images. You can also purchase new graphics through a number of sources.
Remember that when you create or obtain a new graphic for your sign you must take the size of the sign in consideration. The matrix of your sign (the height and width—like the aspect ratio) needs to come close to the height and width of the graphic you want to place on the sign.

Note: Sometimes the window that pops up doesn’t go directly to your graphics folder. If this occurs, you must do a search of the folder that contains the additional graphics you want to use. To do so, follow these steps:
The TYPE of graphic files you can use on your sign depends on the type of sign you own.
If you have an RGB (full color) sign then you typically can use more complex or colorful graphics. It also depends on the matrix of your sign and the size / aspect ratio / pixel matrix of the graphic you want to place on your sign.
This is a bug that occurs with SignX version 2.06. To eliminate this issue please upgrade to SignX version 2.08 which can be found at the Signtronix.com website.
