Are you viewing the notebook onscreen in the Printing Environment or with Show Page Breaks turned on (as you may know, if you don't have one of these turned on, line breaks and other stuff you see on the screen have little relevance to what gets printed). Assuming that you're interpreting everything you see on the screen correctly, I'm not immediately aware of any problems here (not to say that there aren't...just that I don't know of them). Maybe tech support would be able to help. However, I think I can be a little more helpful for your second problem. > 2) Is it possible to change the default line-spacing multiplier option > for input cells to, say, 1.1, rather than 1.25? Nothing I've tried > seems to stick. You can change this in the style sheet. Edit the style sheet and choose the style for StandardForm (which is under the heading "FormatType styles"). Then bring up the option inspector and modify the LineSpacing option for the selection. This, of course, assumes that your Input cells are in StandardForm (which they are by default)...if they're in InputForm or TraditionalForm, then you would have to modify those styles instead.
