That's the funny thing ... apparently I don't! See the code in my previous mail. There I seem to get the frame from the \setlayerframed command alone.

I'm afraid that doesn't make the vertial space vanish :-( Any ideas?

Also, can I force the streamlayer to have a fixed height? In the example I'd like the first column to be filled all the way down to the visible bottom frame and then the remaining text should be broken to the second column. At the moment both columns are filled with roughly equal amounts of text...
