Jack,

We've tried to recruit beta testers who have particular expertise where we
need particular questions answered or fixes verified.

You're not such a one.  So we don't really have, and don't expect to have,
any particular "assignments" for you.  Just let us know if you find
something wrong or confusing.

DBT 10.4 allowed for only one embosser.  DBT 10.5 allowed for many.

You can copy templates from beta to beta, but I'm not sure why you'd want
to.  For our part, we're not really interested in feedback about problems
you might encounter when re-arranging software.  Just let us know, with each
beta posting, what you find with that one.

For this release, we're not prioritizing any improvements to treating
notetakers as embossers.  In the future, I expect that we will.  Then your
particular setup and preferences will be very helpful.  For this release,
I'm confident that you'll find something that helps us -- it just won't be
embosser-related.

- Peter

I guess, my question, would be, how can I help here, when the issues would
naturally cluster around lay-out and embossing When I have no embosser and
am using a very rapidly degrading version of win98.

I am a bit confused about version history, probably found on the site. I
can't remember whether the earliest version of DBT I got was 10.4 or 10.5.
Was it 10.5 that didn't allow for multiple embossers.

Can I copy over a template from the last beta into this one and have it
recognized?

My "embosser" is a little strange but works optimally for me. Each line is
38 cells wide ending with a <cr> only and strips out form-feeds, as braille
page breaks have no relevance to me.  I can't remember all the steps I took
to create this. I'd have it internalized if I were embossing everyday.

I can use a notetaker as a simulated embosser, by simply dumping to a file,
however I don't see this to be very helpful, and the embosser would, I think
have to be generic.

Jack
