Hi Kirk, my screen is a standard 1280 by 1024 also. Of course,
1024/1280=4/5 not 3/4, I don't know if that is the problem but it would
be nice to be able to tweak the settings but I don't know where to look
in the code yet. I see no option that can override this, however, when
the paper option is set to letterpaper the black bars do get a bit
smaller in the presentation mode.
