I tried that, Claude.  But altho I was able to get a 'text frame' with the 
markers, and I was able to enter some text, leaving it highlited ala Ooo 
writer to resize it and change the font, the resize took the top half of 
the characters clear off the top of the box, and there never was any 
indicator other than the cursor changing slightly, to a + while over the 
box.  No popups ever & I left and right clicked all over it.  But I'll 
give it another shot, its an impressive appearing program eye candy wise.

Maybe I need to change my chew? But I haven't in 20 years, horrible stuff.  
And I quit rolling smoke in 89, cold turkey.  I get way more than my 
share 2nd hand anyway from the missus.
