Andy, The typesetting terminology is not used consistently; a widow to some people is an orphan to others and the other way around. However, definitions won't solve your problem. It seems that whatever you call it, FM only let's you specify the minimum number of rows permitted after a page break and not the number of rows before. --Lynne Lynne A.
