Phil, Been using Superpaint for years, but Appleworks is just so darn convenient and I can't imagine there being that much difference. There are other reasons for doing it the way I have also, and I recognize the "existence" of the Fonts "problem", but "Chicago" is always there; hence my "puzzlement". Of course that is precisely the reason I've used bitmaps on the Windows Versions. And I already DO have large Resource Files. Thanks anyway, Joe Wilkins Phil Yates wrote: > You have to remember that a PICTURE is just a collection of draw commands.
