Hmmm... I do.... ahh... but did you also apply the patches to openjade
that you need to apply?  Check out:


Because you have the new JadeTex, you can avoid all the JadeTex patches,
but you will need to patch and recompile openjade. (which you can get
from http://openjade.sourceforge.net/)

Apologies for not mentioning that earlier.

You don't, if you are happy with the 3pt value.  If you want to change
the value, you *should* add them to your customization layer rather
than changing them directly in the file.

Oops... yes, that is correct.  I was reading email remotely and 
couldn't copy and paste from the file... so I just typed them in
and obviously forgot the critical '-' there.

How are you generating the PDF?  If you are ultimately calling 
openjade, you will need to patch the program as mentioned earlier.

Hope this helps,
