Yes, we need to discuss how to fix it.  Enjoy your beer.

I wish I could put a whacking great smiley in here, so please assume one for
now.

So you are saying that, for example, if our Lines per page on 11 inch deep
paper is set at the maximum of 25, and we decide to have a 2 line top
margin, which is then ignored when we click OK, you need to discuss how to
fix it?

Let us discuss.

Arithmetic, my old son.  25 - 2 = 23.  Fact.

Question?

Should there be two Line fields visible?  (And of course two character
fields)

1)  Physical Lines per page
** Less Top Margin per page
2)  Embossed Lines per page  (Which is purely a calculated field, not
editable)

I'd be just as happy to get a warning that says, words to the effect of,
"Hey pal, you can't count!".

It's 10pm - I finally need a beer!

George.
