Hi Geir,

Yes, I know that this is an option.  It may be good enough in some
cases, but some windows have scrolling lists where the entire contents
need to appear in the report, and 'Print Top' will only print what is visible.

Too bad you can't just copy/paste like in the olden days...

The notation idea is a good one, and in fact Jean-Marc VOEGELI sent me a
little sample app, I will probably use it to save a little typing.
