Size is always fine, Mrs Matthews has never sai..., oh the PDF.  No, size is good, as I was using the Adobe Acrobat driver making API calls to it.  But I had to install it which may be a bummer in many cases.

How about emailing the Omnis report as a .ODT file, export it and then you reload it perhaps.

Apple and me; the little white round ball thing can't even last outside, let alone when hell freezes over.
