First of all, thanks to all who are writing AbiWord, it's become my
favourite word processor on Linux. Small, fast, practical.

I'm using the 0.7.13 release for gnome under XFree 4.0.1, Kernel 2.4.1.
I've noticed that when I write something and then use the print preview,
print it, or print it into a file and then look at it with ghostview, the
result differs from what AbiWord shows me. The postscript version of the
document always takes more pages than the display of the document in
AbiWord. The margins don't seem to be the same in AbiWord and the
postscript equivalent it produces, or the fonts are off, I don't know. The
exact amount of difference varies depending on the font used (especially
bad with Courier, but also there with Arial, Times New Roman, etc).

Choosing different paper sizes (A4, letter) in the page setup does not seem
to make a difference.
Does anyone else have this problem, or is it something unique to my system?

If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit.
