at times (my own failings in this regard notwithstanding ;)
If those who "wrote the book" on these matters arent able/willing to

tests ourselves. I'll be back.
I must admit having missed your Forum entry.
Without running your program I know that WSASV (EP4) and PSAVE (QPTR) will
add padding, sometimes even 1 Long more than needed.
They were written in QL mode days and clearly never changed for High
The same is probably true for the "Books", this padding is not mentioned
there. That's why SQRview tests for any padding.
When saving such a PIC as SPR the padding is already there and needs not
to be added but too much padding may result in a slanted sprite if lines
are not cut properly as it relies on x-width and not on line increment as
