Does anyone know why, and how to correct, the Snow Leopard defect of expanding pages larger than they were in OS 10.5.8? In other words, why, (all other settings being the same), does the same page of data in Leopard now expand to a page and an eighth in Snow Leopard?


For instance, the same 547 page Appleworks manuscript in Leopard  expands to 614 pages in Snow Leopard! This is totally unacceptable as it wrecks a couple of years of carefully planned page layout formatting! I also find that Snow Leopard similarly expands files in Preview, Quicken, etc. and all on the same computer.


My computer is a silver keyboard MacBook Pro with a 500gb Hd partitioned into 10.5.8, 10.6.8 with Rosetta, and 10.7.3.


And, please don’t suggest that I use some other word processor than Appleworks. Appleworks isn’t perfect, but no other processor suits my purpose as well. I already have one Appleworks produced book in publication: The Mighty Tiger, and two other books nearing completion behind that, so I am not about to change horses mid-river.


I truly want to use Snow Leopard but unless there is a remedy for this serious  defect, I have no choice but end my days in OS 10.5.8.


Thanks for your help. Sincerely, Tiger Joe

    Tiger Joe...  You've done a good job explaining your problem.  It's specific enough, that I expect anyone that may have come across it would recognize it right away.  The problem is that the title you have given to the thread isn't clear and someone browsing through the threads probably won't know what the thread is about without opening it.  I can request that the moderator revise the title if you wish.  I would suggest something like:


    547 page Appleworks manuscrip in Leopard expands to 614 pages in Snow Leopard.  This causes problems with years of carefully planned layout.  Has anyone experienced this?


    That's just a suggestion... but I'll pass on whatever change you would like.
