Yes Bill, 3 is what we are using but we are telling GB to fit it to one page
of 166 inches wide, the actual size of the chart is about 20 inches longer
than this. We sometimes use 1.5 to reduce the length of the chart this is
when we have to adjust box sizes more often.
> How many data items are in the boxes with the problem splits?
Just the name Bill, nothing else but it does happen if there is more than a
name in the box but not very often. It seems the more info there is in the
box the less likelyhood of a name split.

Yes Bill it is. I've just ran it for the 4th time and it happened after
adjusting just 5 boxes.

Both, the font seems to enlarge and go into bold.
