Hi Andy

Yup, printing can be a real PITA.  Maybe one day, Studio 12, perhaps :)

I mean who cares, but it is a pain for web versions of Omnis in particular as you can't see that they are trying to tell you something !! I don't know what causes that either but I would be prepared to bet large that they are all tied up to the same root cause - and this has been an issue with Omnis for decades going back to Classic days too....
