Publisher vexed me today. It appears to be more WYSIPMWYG* than WYSIWYG, leading to the frustration. A difference of 3/16th of an inch isn’t a problem for most documents, but when one is using those pre-scored business card forms, one wants to print five cards, each exactly 2” tall. Otherwise the print image creeps across the target rectangle, and by the time the printer reaches the bottom of the page, the picture is crossing the edge of the card. I don’t like wasting paper and ink on test sheets, but it’s even worse to load the card stock into the printer and have four of the ten images coloring outside the lines.

Anyway, I printed up a bunch of these to give to Gilead so he can hand them out at LepreCon (I said I’d do this, remember?). They look like this:
