    Default Letter printing problem

    Hi all, I have a problem with a letter I designed. The letter consists of a letter head of 1.5 in. and a letter section of 3.5 in. The page is set up with a 2.5 in. top margin. The first record prints correctly, all subsequent letters print 1.5 in. lower on the page. By this I mean that the first line of the letterhead prints 2.75 in. down from the top of the page on the first record. On the subsequent records the first line prints 4.25 in. down from the top of the page. The subsequent records do not advance the 1.5 in. each record, each prints at the 4.25 in mark. I am including a picture of the letter design screen.a5letter.JPG


    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Is that a page break object in your screen shot? I'm not sure if it is necessary and might cause problems. Also it seems to be placed in the middle (vertically) of some text to be printed.
    There can be only one.

    Yes it was. I enlarged the letter section and the genie must have placed it there. When I remove it completely the second letter starts on the bottom of the first page. When I move it below the text it does the same as the original, prints first record correctly and the subsequent 1.5 in. down the page. The page is set up as Letter, portrait, 2.5 in. top margin, 0.5 in. left margin, 0.5 in. right margin and 0.5 in. bottom margin. It is setup to print to the default printer, Canon MF6550.

    I went back to square one and redesigned the letter from scratch. I must have made an error in the first letter when editing the RTF. The second letter works as designed without a problem. Thank You for the help.
