          I am using 8.02, almost exclusively w/ pdf import, and getting mixed happiness out of it.


          Either the cxrap accounting system we use is the issue, or, it's the conversion. I'm betting on the accounting system, but need to ascertain if there is an issue w/ the import.


          2 issues:

          1. Bought monarch online, have no user manual, can't find a downloadable one.

          2. If I run long reports, typical general ledger w/ columnarized values, the columns slide further and further to the right until at the bottom, I am missing about 1/10 of the data. To combat I have been playing with floating traps (thus the need for a manual) with mixed results. I have also tried every possible combo of ansii/ascii/utf with ignoring control codes etc etc etc.


          To summarize, I love monarch, have used it for about 10 years but am experiencing nothing but grief so far w/ this. Again, I'm not sure about which is the source of the grtief. Any help you can provide would be useful.
