    Yes, but you must PRINT a carriage return after that, or the ($D1) and
    ($F3) pointers won't be changed. So, that's why you must make
    POKE 214,(R-1)AND255:PRINT:POKE 211,C instead, as I suggested before.

    This is such a late response, but if you are still there Marko, thank you so much. I was tearing my hair out, when my code was not setting the row. (but it was working everywhere else). You are a star!
