This works, but my labels and symbols are now too large and each map requires 
quite a bit of work to get them looking as they should.

I notice that if I just ignore the error and force TeX to continue by pressing the return 
key I get what I want. Is there somthing I can put into my source file to tell TeX to ignore 
this error?

Thanks for your help.
