I got them, and followed them, as far as I could tell. The "columnized"
..sgn file was fine, and printing it was not a problem either (I don't think
it was--actually I'm not sure I even printed it). The problem was exporting
the "columnized" version to a bitmap. In the bitmap image, the bottom sign
of each line was cut off. I could, as Bill Reese suggested, put a space at
the bottom of each column, but in a long document, that would get
cumbersome. I thought maybe there would be a quick fix.

4.4 Letter

Printing isn't a problem

This will be a problem for me, as I have an inkjet, but I'll deal with it

Thanks for your help,
