    The only one who can edit the sign is THE PLAYER WHO PLACED IT, in order to not edit the sign by other players when you upload the map

    What about not only having editable signs but movable ones as well? What if you put the sign in the wrong place? Wouldn't it be helpful if you could move the sign to the correct place as well?

    What if you could crouch and click on the sign with a feather?

    This would be especially helpful for Minecraft PE as it is much easier to mistype/submit the text too soon than on other platforms.

    Yeah it could happen with right-click but if (with commands) the sign do a function when right-clicked?

    Maybe a better way is to add a ‘quill’ (made from a feather and ink sack) that can be used on a sign to change the text. The quil will also be used to make the ‘book and quil’

    Good idea. Right click the sign. (shift click for placing a block)

    Yes, please! It's a day 1 feature. Right-click on a sign while holding a sign.

    It's not very hard to break signs

    That's true, but if you type out a whole sign and click Submit, and then find that you have a typo, it would be so much easier to right-click and fix the typo than to break the sign have rewrite everything.

    I'd like to add here: You know how putting a map on an item frame pulls it out to cover the entire block?  What if we could do that with a sign? We could write on the sign, pin it up in the frame, and it would cover the whole block :)   With a few of these lined up next to eachother the wall could become a clean, seamless writing surface ;)

    Please allow &1 or &5 Color Codes!
    Coloring the whole sign ist nice but coloring particular words is better!

    @Zorro8183 Well if we had rewritable signs that would be less of a problem because you could click to rewrite it and press CTRL+A to select the text and then click CTRL+C to copy it and then destroy the sign and then replace it and then press CTRL+V to paste it.
