    Wayne, My solution is to let the 2 pages be 2 pages, then strip out the form- feed from every other page in the pcl file. (Also, I indent every other page)

      Wayne,

      My solution is to let the 2 pages be 2 pages, then strip out the form-
      feed from every other page in the pcl file. (Also, I indent every
      other page) That way, the 2 pages "become" one page.

      Jim.
