Hi Richard,

If I set .pl 15i the resulting document is 11i long and the bottom of
my document is cut off How else should I define a custom length Using

Can you provide some extra detail?  Are you using a macro set, e.g. -ms?
Is there a small example input that shows the problem?


No macros

$ cat long_page_test
.pl 15i
this is the top
.sp |14.5i
this is the bottom

$ groff long_page_test >

If I change .sp |14.5i -> .sp |10.5i the text "this is the bottom" prints at the bottom of the page
