Quite by accident, I discovered that the solution is to open the document setup before opening a new document. Changes made then become the default for all new docs. Changes to document setup after a new document is opened apply only to that doc. Don't know why this answer isn't in my manual, help, or the knowledge base--it's so simple!
I agree. It has been asked and answered so many times, that John should have included it in the FAQs. However, as we are talking of a dead/dying product, it's not likely to be included now.
Sorry for the delay, but I hadn't been around here for some time.
Yes, it should be included, but then I'm pretty sure it's in the PM help files somewhere.
I've had a look at the FAQs over the Christmas beak, and the majority of them need an opening proviso that says something like:
"PM ceased development in 2002, almost 7 years ago. Any help, support or advice is now based on archives, but for PM to operate properly, you must have your version installed on a contemporary version of Windows."

You are probably right about the question being answered in the Help menu, but it has been a long time without using PM. And I'm not in Santiago right now, so I have no access to my faithful and antique Mac, where I have a copy of 6.5, so I cannot check.
Also, I'm not sure if the PM forums will survive the big changes to come soon.
Any plans of coming to Chile in a not too distant future?
Yes, the traffic here has dwindled to a tickle these days. We're like old men sitting in the library archive, reminiscing about the good old days.
I now only load up PM to check things when someone asks a question.
Like PM, this forum's days are numbered.
As for visiting Chile, it's still on the list of things to do before I die. However, my asthma and heart aren't what they used be, and while I went up high in the Himalayas 30 years ago, I'm going to have to be more careful at altitude if I want to go up high into Andes. (I live about 10m about sea level these days). But all it really means is take it gently - and take more time to enjoy the views and gorgeous red wines of Chile - http://www.conchaytoro.com/

Your posts are certainly more interesting than the usual ones. I know PM is dying...I have 7.1 and I guess that was the last permutation...but since I only do desktop publishing for volunteer work I can't afford to invest in In Design (as much as I'd like to).
I appreciate your comments. Enjoy Chile, whenever you get there.
