Yes. I stopped Frame each time and re-started it - because I vaguely
remembered that it reads the maker.ini file only on startup. Don't know
if that is right or wrong, but just did it that way.

Interesting difference indeed! Is it a font specific issue perhaps? My
testing - albeit very brief - has been with Palatino Linotype only.

Perhaps! But, I don't remember seeing it in p273 either. Needless to
say, I am thinking of using the fix as you describe, since it makes it
easier to read in the maker.ini file anyway. :)
