I was referring to p.20 of the Lout Users's Guide, and I ought to quote
"2vx @Break" or "2fx @Break" which did not work in my document. I still do
not understand why.

I am interested in as easy as posssible to use PostScriptproducing layout
systems. Sometimes I would like to make half a page blank out of, 
for instance, graphical considerations. These graphical actions are not
always simple in Lout.
