Hi Stuart and listers,

I have got no idea about software issues whatsoever - but what I am doing is
to try to find a way to work with it as best as possible.

Today I found . that could eventually support you in your efforts to
find a solution to the printing problem?

Adobe Distiller gives a feedback that there is only one page !  that can be
printed -

perhaps there is in the program that tells the program that the whole
document is just one page ??

-- hm - if this is nonsense  - please forget this message -- ;-)

Stefan, :-)

It sounds like there is a problem with the code that defines a page and what
fits on a page.  I've been doing some reading up on the Java programming
language and remember that part from my reading.  So maybe that's where it
needs to be looked at. Hmmmm.
