      It may help you to have available on-screen horizontal and vertical rulers.
      There's an old freeware app called "Screen Loupe" which has these rulers in
      its Tools menu. The magnifier won't work in Windows 7 Aero mode, but will
      work in Windows 7 Classic mode. The rulers work in both modes.

      You can download Loupe from http://members.aol.com/GreggBraun/HomePage.htm.
      If you have trouble from this site, I'll be happy to email a .zip file to
      you, if you will just send me your personal email address.

      How you get my personal address on this public website is another issue.
      I've no experience emailing person-to-person in NoteTab's forums, so beyond
      officially authorizing you to have my address I am clueless.

      By Jove, you are right! Never occurred to me as I see perfectly
      shaped zeros. Maybe I should stop cursing over these stupid American
      measurements then. ;-o)
      I'll tell them about this when I mail them.

      I would, but it's only for kids. I've drawn the contour of my foot on
      a paper, but according to their conversion table I'm an European 40 -
      41 and I'm not, more like 38 - 39. Maybe I convert to the wrong kind
      of inches. On the other hand the footprint on the paper does look
      like the Yeti had put its paw on it... Better talk to them.

      Many thanks!
