Karen, I hesitate to ask, since you are clearly so much worse off than I.

I am partially sighted, and have great difficulty with your emails because the
blocks are so large. The largest block of text in this email is 14 lines,
which is still problematic, but the largest block in your previous email was
44 lines long. [ I didn't count myself, I got KWrite to do it. ;-) ]

I realise that you may not be able to do anything about it, and that you may
not even know that you are doing it. But if you do know that you are doing
it, and would be able to do something about it, could you possibly?

I find your emails worth reading and am prepared to take some effort to read
them. And I could always copy and paste into a word processor and edit it.
It's just that it would be nice not to have to do so.

Thanks,
Lisi

Default unique install question? (Squeeze audio install using the Wheezy-di from a USB drive)

Hi Lici,
That was the nicest way to say...get to the point!
Honestly, I cannot speak to how layout appears for others.
I actually have the same question when I use, pico, the editor here.
In google mail there is an option. Wrap lines to fit displayed area?
I always say now, since the displayed area is going to differ based on
what you are using.

Therefore I am not sure I can do much about how Pico is blocking the text.
That might not be the main issue though.
I admit to a William Faulkner or Charles Dickens sentence structure
tendency.

Do either of those names ring a bell?
You know, starting a sentence on say page 7 that goes on for a a couple of
pages?

That is a Falkner hing.

Writing my email in a word processor might help me on that front, but
pico
like word is no word processor.

No idea if that helps!
Would you feel better if I shared that Brian tabled my main issue ages
back?

Falknerly yours,
Kare

Again if there were a list that one could review outside of the install

I use nano instead of pico and I can get lines to wrap by putting

unset nowrap

into my .nanorc file. You could try putting that into your .picorc
file. (Create that file if it doesn't exist already.)
