      Hi, Everyone.

      After nearly three years of using OS 9.2.2 on my TiBook on which Jaguar
      was installed, I have finally migrated to Panther, thanks in no small
      part to encouragement from many on this list. I like the new operating
      system generally, and WordPerfect's performance in Classic so far has
      been fine. Publish and Subscribe still works within Classic, so I've
      been happy to find that John R's UltraClip still works.

      I've run into one glitch, though. When documents made using the
      following procedure (which I think is nothing new, though I cannot now
      find the source from which I kept this one instruction) are printed from
      Classic, the lines do not print except where text has been typed; to get
      the lines to print correctly I have to restart in 9.2.2. Has anyone run
      into this?

      > then turn off Underline.

      I would be happy to send an sample document or two for posting.

      Kudos to John for revitalizing the WP list, and to John and many of the
      rest of you for finding ways to keep WP not just working but competitive
      (I just installed the Freeware PDF Distiller as described on the WP-DOS
      site, for example, and it works great). Thank you all.
