Hand Search

If sometimes you just can't find a hand shape through in the many availables ones in the All Symbols list, use this tool. 


If a text box if left blank, it is not taken into account in the search.  If a check box is grayed out it is not taken into account in the search.

Each time a checkbox is toggled, it will change from "Ignore" to "Not extended"  to "Extended".  If toggled again it will return to the grayed out "Ignore".

Click on the Search button to find handshapes that fit the criteria.  Select a symbol to use it. If no symbols matched your criteria, a message will let you know.

Click on Reset to get the original criteria.

Move the mouse arrow over a symbol and a short description will show up.
