Then put it under a different menu heading Greg, it's not rocket science
you know.  Why is simplicity such a hard idea for most of you to grasp? 
I'm baffled as to this type attitude, play by our rules or we'll take
our ball and go home!  Many of you guys seem to think your experience
with such things are over and above any other users and everybody must
be just to stupid to grasp the concept of text frames.  Your thoughts &
ideas couldn't be further from the truth.  You remind me a lot of the
old early typesetter guys and companies.  I remember approaching them
with the idea of electronic typesetting.  They literally ran us out of
the shop!  Now it's the dominant form of typesetting, but you still have
the same old archaic & antiquated ideas about how things should work. 
I'm disappointed.

Matthew, MS Publisher?  Man what have you been smoking!  First of all, I
would never use Windows to do anything like this and MS Publisher has
got to be one of the worse DTP programs ever!

Benjamin, you depict exactly what I've been referring to all along.  Quote:

"This is true if you want to get good results, you 
need a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience"

Where do you guys come up with this stuff?  Where have you been hiding
out for the last few 10 years?
