Thanks. How do you see the "Set up print rtf project" dialog after the first setup?
It seems to show once, and then disappear. I have looked through the manual enough to get my frame to go to word, but the word version is still 30 percent bigger than the frame, so it does not look like the original. Maybe one problem is a View in Frame (my custom draft mark) that, even when hidden in Frame, shows in Word. That puts itself in the middle of each page. Maybe that is what is throwing off the page size. I cannot see why this View, hidden in Frame, shows in Word. Paul -------------- Original message ---------------------- From: "Jeremy H.
