Then what DTP software would you run? Now I’m puzzled!
As I said previously. I would use Page Plus 6. Which I have always found to be the most straightforward and simple to use. Version 6 was the last version where you entered text directly on to your page and not into a separate text box. Borders would remain constant. And if I want a 64mm x 34mm box for a label. I can drag a box to the exact size, with the dimensions being shown on the tool bar at the bottom of the page. And if it still wasn't quite right. I could right click on my box and enter the parameters manually. I don't know of any DTP program that gives you that amount of control.
