11+++ A few important remarks
12
13    * The number of print pages shown in the preview dialog does not
14      always match the number when really printing (technical problem)
15    * Preparing print or preview needs some time so please be patient
16    * Depending on printer and printer driver the real margins may be
17      a bit larger as set in the page setup dialog.

30++++ Page separator
31This applies only to "Plain text" prints.
