We hit somewhat a similarproblem about a month ago on a submission.  It
seems to be endemic to the system!

*If we ever crack this nut, (or if somebody on the 'serv helps us out),
*we will certainly share!  We had that number problem too a month
*or so back, where one number went over another one, something I
*didn't think a computer could do (only old Royal typewriters).
*  All in all, this is such fun, isn't it?    : )
*  Thanks for getting back to me.    Anne

*Anne,
*
*I can't offer any hints, but I can sympathize with you in your problem.
*We had just prepared a proposal where the Budget Notes and Facilities
*section did something similar to what you mentioned.  However, it was
*mainly affecting the numbers in these sections.  If there was a five
*digit number in the section, the numerals would all print on top of one
*another as if compressing them into a smaller space.  Of course, this
*was only happening when printing the entire proposal rather than just
*the page or section.  I would be anxious to hear a solution to this
*problem!
