Hi

If you really absolutely need more capacity,
you can ask a wizard to enlarge me.

which means little to me. I defined it as one area as last time the 
joins did not look good last time I tried. (sorry if this is better now) 
but before I go to the trouble of splitting it all up, will that solve 
the problem, or will there still be some size issue. It ran fine without 
the area in.

I am using win2000 and 0.3.10

thanks

Andrew
