Hi Peter.  I think you are correct about the BANA template not being
properly stripped of embosser set up info.  As a test, I did the following:

1.  Renamed the existing SP2 template in Duxbury\Templates so that it had
.old as its file extension
2.  Copied the BANA template from another computer where SP1 is installed to
the Duxbury\Templates directory of SP2
3.  Launched Duxbury and attempted to reproduce the error.  I cannot.
Duxbury now grabs my default embosser settings.

Take care.

Joanie,

You've hit upon what may be a major point of discussion: I've reworked how
your document settings are carried through embosser setup, especially when
you switch among many models.  It sounds as though you've hit upon some
unintended consequence of that.  I'll have a closer look this afternoon.

It may be simply that the BANA template included with SP2 hasn't been
properly stripped of embosser setup information.  Normally, when we
distribute a template, documents created with it will take settings from
your Global, Embosser Setup selections.  Whereas, when you create a
template, the settings stick to the template.

Has anybody else run into similar problems?

Just noticed something else.  It's not *just* the characters per line that
changes.  It's the form, which goes from my narrow width 11-inch wide paper,
to narrow width 10-inch wide paper, which makes the 40 characters per line
all the more interesting....

Hi All.  I admittedly don't use the BANA template very often, but I noticed
something odd in SP2 that does not occur in SP1.  To reproduce:
 
1.  Create an entry for an Index Basic D, narrow paper in Global Embosser
Set Up and make this your default embosser.  (Note, I'm not convinced this
is an Index thing:  I just haven't tried it with any other embossers).
2.  Create a new print document using the BANA template 3.  Examine the
*document* embosser settings.  When I do this in SP1, I find the same
settings specified in the Global Embosser Set Up.  In contrast, when I do
this in SP2, I find that I am using the same embosser and most of its
settings, but characters per line reverts to 40.
 
Take care.
Joanie
