Thanks Russ - but if it works properly you should be able to change margins, add/remove headers/footers without worrying. The text objects (smart stories) clearly don't print the way they are seen on the edit screen - they are not WYSIWYG. You can't even see the headers or footers on the edit screen. The rest of the world has been using WYSIWYG for word processing for about 20 years - Ancestry clearly needs to catch up, or bite the bullet and come to an agreement with Microsoft to use a Word-like editor.

I like the idea of the book publisher but it has too many drawbacks to be properly useful.
