[bksvol-discuss] Re: Page Issue

Hi Melissa,

I tried this. It worked to an extent, but this book still has 50 or so pages
that shouldn't be there even after adjusting the paper size. Hmmm.

I've not come across your situation, so I don't know if this will work 
or not. I'd probably try this on a test file first. There is a character 
for whitespace, which is ^w which might get rid of the blank lines after 
the page breaks.
