How to Edit Signs

Signs have been around for so long, it's amazing they waited until 2002 to make a movie about them

First, choose the sign (or signs) that you'd like to Edit.

Note that you can select multiple signs in 4 ways.

  1. By holding the shift key and clicking on the signs you'd like to select, specifically, on the map.
  2. By holding the shift key and dragging a box around the signs you'd like to select, on the map.
  3. By clicking on a sign in the list, holding shift, and selecting a sign lower down. This will also select all the signs between those 2.
  4. (PC Only) By clicking on a sign in the list, holding ctrl, and selecting other signs, specifically.

Once you've selected the sign, you'll see multiple fields that you can adjust as you see fit.

Note that the fields visible here will depend on the type of the sign (or signs) selected.
If you've selected signs of different types, you'll only be able to modify the fields that are common between ALL the signs.

You can find more info on fields in sign types here: Manage Fields
