[GRASS-user] WinGRASS: Test Build on Vista

Hi Marco,

I loaded the new build under Windows XP and it runs all right, so far 
as my simple usage is concerned - constructing a map from various 
vector layers.

However, as someone new to Grass, my knowledge is not great.  Using 
the print button on the map display, I'm having trouble reproducing 
in a file what I see on the screen
- An eps file does not appear to include the entire region on the 
screen, regardless of the paper size specified (I've tried A4 and A0)
- A pdf file using A4 paper is at least contained within the page, 
although not centrally, but if I specify A0 I get a part map in one 
corner of the page.
Can you point me at relevant documentation to read to try to sort 
this out please?

Many thanks,
John Field
