I too encounter the same problem when I installed the v 0.7.13 RPM for
RedHat 6.2. So I had to uninstall it and reinstalled the older version
0.7.11 RPM that came with my Mandrake 7.2 distro instead. If somebody
could point out how to make 0.7.13 work will be grateful.

Am now checking out the Win32 version of 0.7.13 on Windows. One
question - is the View-->"Header and Footer" option not implemented
yet, or I'm just not invoking it correctly? The option seems to be
unselectable although it's there.

Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.
