Working on a PC does make things more difficult for you. And doing it  
with a word type application rather than a draw application such a  
PCDraft, limits your arrangement flexibility. I've not used  Open  
Office, so there is probably a drawing environment within it that will  
give you the flexibility you require. Good luck! I take it you are  
working on producing a PDF that explains how to use REV. I trust  
you'll post a link to the final product. We can always use guidance.
