Hi, Thomas,

The override warning reveals that all pages except the last
page have overrides.  It is easy enough to remove the
overrides and resave the bibliography.  This is
probably just a quirk in how CiteMaker creates the
bibliography.  The strange thing is that the override
page layout doesn't correspond to any master page, not
even the master page in the default template.  Anyway,
there's probably no point dwelling on it.  Thanks for
pointing out the override warning.

I may have found a mistake in the online documentation.
It says that if you have just one page layout and one
master page, then you can change the master page by
changing the body page.  That's not my experience.  If
I change the size of a text box on a body page, all
other body pages stay the same.  That's actually a good
