I needed to get one heading for two stamps
Through a bit of trial and error I got this solution

PAGE_TEXT_CENTRE_VSPACE (HS 9 "Perforation 14" .5)

PAGE_TEXT_CENTRE_VSPACE (HS 9 "Letters In all 4 Corners" 4) #_VSPACE

ROW_START_FS (HS 6 0.1 6.0)
STAMP_ADD (23.0 26.0 "2d \n Blue \n Perforations" " " "Two Penny Blue \n Letters \n Top HF Bottom FH" " ")
STAMP_ADD (23.0 26.0 "1d \n Red \n Perforations" " " "One Penny Red \n Letters \n Top CK Bottom KC" " ")

to get this



Is there a more elegant solution, although this does the job for me.

If anyone else has any other solutions to share please feel free to share them here.

I do not see anything wrong with your page, but could you post a picture of the whole page? Maybe we can see what you mean.

There is no easy way to do this what I can see in the program so had to find a work around, tried with STAMP_ADD_BLANK but does not put a heading above.

Hi Perfin_RK,
You could of course use a STAMP_HEADING or STAMP_HEADING_VA command which adds a heading centred above the stamp.

STAMP_HEADING_PADDING (-2.0)

ROW_START_FS (HS 6 0.1 6.0)
STAMP_ADD (23.0 26.0 "2d \n Blue \n Perforations" " " "Two Penny Blue \n Letters \n Top HF Bottom FH" " ")
STAMP_HEADING(HS 9 "Perforation 14 \n Letters In all 4 Corners\n" 14.5)
STAMP_ADD (23.0 26.0 "1d \n Red \n Perforations" " " "One Penny Red \n Letters \n Top CK Bottom KC" " ")

The STAMP_HEADING command take an optional fourth parameter used to shift the heading horizontally. To centre it above the gap I used 14.5mm which is the width of the stamp plus half the width of the gap.

The STAMP_HEADING_PADDING command adjusts the spacing between the heading and the stamp box for all subsequent headings.

Typo
"The two penny blue's where the first"...
"Where" should be "were"

I am not an expert, so the accuracy of your pages I'll leave for others.
They do look super.

Is there a way to make stamp boxes fill with Black color? So the stamp picture will be on the black background?

Not in the current version.

However, AlbumEasy V4.0 which I will be releasing in the next few days (I am doing final testing at the moment), does provide support for coloured backgrounds in stamp boxes.

I have also added support for double borders on stamp boxes. To save ink, instead of filling the entire background, you can use a thick inner border - once the stamp is in place it will look like the whole box is filled.

If you want to be notified when V4.0 is released, contact me via the AlbumEasy web site and I will add you to the list of people to notify.
