I'm sure when you get this all worked out that others on the list would be
interested in your technique.

It is true that Verdana is a variable-spaced, not a mono-spaced font. As
such, for it to look good, it must not be forced into a certain pitch.
Where you are specifying FONT, don't specify PITCH.
However, if you are printing two or more labels (horizontally) per "set",
that will rely on the character spacing to establish the placement; this
essentially forces you to use a mono-spaced font, such as Courier New.
(If you are printing MULTIPLE SETS across, using the COLUMNOFFSET setting,
that is a different matter.)

There is no explicit way to do this in AnzioWin/Print Wizard. The only way
would be to include some blank lines at the beginning of the document,
which you could do manually by editing your print-init file. That's a
possible future enhancement.
