Even so, set the output scaling and orientation that multiple sheets are needed to print the current sheet. Then capture the sheet/page you desire and discard the rest. Or you could do it the Old Fashioned Way we used about 20 years ago: Print to PS and hack the PS with vi. Each n-up "page" is probably nested within a scaled region. IIRC the red Adobe Postscript book was important to have handy. Would guess some of the smart context-sensitive text editors know Postscript and can block select nested sections. -- David Kelly N4HHE, [EMAIL PROTECTED] ======================================================================== Whom computers would destroy, they must first drive mad. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
