I've started to use Workbook mode, which I haven't really used much up to now.
A couple of things:
1. I can't seem to control the size of the Page No. When I first opened a workbook it numbered the pages at 90 point, I guess because I had been using 90 point a bit previously on an ordinary drawing. This was even though the text on the pages was at 9 point. I eventually got the Page No. to 9 point by repeatedly changing the font size to 9 point, saving and closing the workbook and opening it again. Once it settled down to 9-point it has been fine. Is it possible to define the Page No. font size in the Pages... setup??
2. When I come to print, it prints all the pages, even if I select print (say) 1 to 1. I guess this could be a Mac problem not a RealCADD problem?
Other than these two minor problems, it's great! I'm making a Table of Offsets - which is the traditional 3-dimensional data for setting out frames on a yacht hull - so each frame is on a different page, which works perfectly.
Well - one other thing - it would be nice to see the Page No. in the RealCADD page, not just when you come to print. Not very important.
I don't know how much Workbook is used - but I wonder if it's worth making a Pages menu, like the Layers layout menu - so you can flick from page to page easily? I'm thinking it's perhaps a somewhat neglected feature of RealCADD – certainly I haven't got around to dealing with it in my RealCADD manual – but I will now! Perhaps it would only appear in Workbook mode in place of the Layers layout menu (and maybe no View menu either). Is that possible?/

Edit Oh - I see you can select which pages print from the Layers/Pages ... menu – so disregard item 2
Edit again! 19 Aug Actually I can't get rid of the very big page number however many times I start a new document. I thought I had fixed it but it seems to have reverted to very big whatever I do:
