I found a couple of shell scripts there, most recently modifed by "L.P.
Stedman" who does not give any e-mail address for questions. I'll start
playing with them when I learn how to use the abi-command plugin.

Perhaps it's a matter of defining the appropriate paper size. I'm so new
to abiword I've no idea what's available and what's not.
Couple of buggy issues to report, I don't know where, so I'll mention them
When I open abiword I see the font warning and the splash screen. As soon
as the application is up, I go to Tools -> Preferences and I uncheck the
boxes for both the font warning dialog box and the splash screen. Then I
apply the changes. But, they don't stick. Next invocation, they're back. Is
this me or the application?
Each time abiword loads, the empty window is shrunk vertically and I have
to resize the window to something practical. Is there a setting to change
that will yield a larger window when first fired up?
In preferences I did not see where to set the default data directory. When
I invoke ctrl-o, I'm in my home directory and that's not where my processed
word docs reside. Can I change this?
