tried the switch on the spine pics..didn't like the look, but I did find a slightly longer synop that works the spacing much better.
test printed, all text perfectly readable.
unless there is something else that might need to be changed, I'll be doing the matching label tomorrow.
many thanks for the suggestions and comments so far...keep them coming, I do listen (or read..lol)
