But you can always "double" the relevant torecord-entries.

First you should create a macro with the relavant channels, which you 
can then use many times.


And then double the relevant torecord-entr(y/ies).
Just be sure to have the "bad" one(s) before the other(s) as the entries 
are evaluated in order.

[something, longer margin]
Title = someting
Margin = 1200;1200

Title = something
Margin = 600;600

I personally have many such constructs in my torecord.
I've tought about making it possible to do doing things like this in 
just a single entry, but the itch for that hasn't been strong enough for 
me to scratch it. :-)

Real Programmers consider "what you see is what you get" to be just as
bad a concept in Text Editors as it is in women. No, the Real Programmer
wants a "you asked for it, you got it" text editor -- complicated,
cryptic, powerful, unforgiving, dangerous.
