Re: Keeping at least 3 bullet items contiguous

If you could trick up a table that could hold one bullet per row without
looking any different than the surounding text, then you could tell the
table not to split with fewer than 3 rows.  Although THEN you'd have to
fight Frame's inability to split table rows across pages, so it all depends
on your content whether it's worth it or not.

That would work if the next page had lots of space.  However, I have lots
of big
figures, and many pages have very few lines.  It is possible for the list
get split near the middle or the end.  I can do a similar trick to the
for the end, but if I start doing that for the middle, it gets messy.  Even
above gets messy if I do alot of editing.  But micro-customizing the items
the list seems to be the only option.  Thanks for thinking up a possible
