That's a given here. It's always the American 8.5 x 11.

No. I tried running the default report and it was messed up. The default
and custom reports I use resulted in 8-12 page reports. In both, all
horizontal lines after page 1 are nonexistent except for the first name
that appears on a page. The messed-up lines is a well-known problem that
has been there forever, although previously the horizontal lines existed
(but messed up). I seem to recall that Bill once said he hadn't figured
out how to fix this. That's the reason for my concern about the issues I
originally asked about (see below). Since I can't edit the report in a
word processor, the issues I noted can't be fixed. I use this report a lot
to review family connections and to share data with others. I've taken to
exporting my data to Legacy and using their report, but I'd rather not have
to do that.

Thanks for the suggestions,
