I have three that I would appreciate help/ explanation:
2d. Gather nothing in volume post again (9).
I have R_A_P_I_T and feel Reappoint would fit.
26a. Fuss starts to irritate the personnel in prison (7).
I have N_T___K and Nitpick would fit
19d. German opera that's nothing to a frenchman, centres on Zanzibar(6).
I have _I_N_I.

1D - REAP (gather) + O (nothing) in PINT (volume)

26A - I(rritate)T(he)P(ersonnel) inside NICK (prison)

Still thinking about the third one.

wombat: I found it quite hard to "see" the eventual solution word when you type a dash underneath the blank spaces like that. It just looks as if there is a word "R A P I T" rather than there being a word "REAPPOINT" in there somewhere!
