AWESOME! However! There are some features I'd like to have that it doesn't offer. The fontwork
gallery is great but some of the font works cannot be changed as to the solid color I want
to use. Also when I want a different font to be typed in place, it reverts back to the arial
font. I would like to be able to add certain font styles to the list of fonts but can't. I
would like to scan a certain fontwork that I have a special project for and use but can't.
I would also like to be able to change things to print in a landscape but can't. I would also
like to set things up so I could make up an entire page, in landscape form, so that I could
print it out on eight and half by fourteen inch paper but can't.

Legal.  You should see the dimensions change to 6.5" and 14" (or metric equivalents) and then
select the Landscape checkbox.

Apologies: where I typed 6.5", it should have been 8.5" - too early in the morning (my time):
my eyes are not yet in gear!
