Jack,

OK -- I missed this part earlier, because I read my morning e-mail from most
recent to oldest.

Is your print-to-file setup installed as a printer driver (in the Windows
Printer control panel)?  And, if so, what printer driver model is
configured?  Generic?

I'm also confused about "the crash".  Was that something that you reported
four or five days ago?

As to the temporary files, there is a "Details" button in the dialog that
reports the presence of temporary files.  Clicking details should get you
information about where they are and what they are called.  Typically I find
that they are empty anyhow.

No.

I have my computer configuration to print to file.

I have replicated the embossing that resulted in the crash. Although it
crashed and locked up, after I synchronized the document and global embosser
configurations, when I embossed sending the output to a file, DBT seemed to
abort immediately, and the taskbar came up.  All runs left temporary files.
I usually always remove these. I don't know where to find these or what name
they would have been given.

In the advanced dialogue for embosser set-up the changes I made, was no
formfeed at end of page and having a carriage return as for mac.  my line
length is 38 characters.

I hope I have given you enough information to replicate the problem.  When I
created the template, I am almost certain that the line length and chars per
page (25) match the document and global embosser configuration settings.

Jack
