Hi David,

Looks like your e-mail may have swallowed up the following
from David Spybey re his Thiel Beta X3

George.

settings

David

On our 13 inch paper we have settings of
38 characters per line
30 lines per page

However I think that you could squeeze 40 characters on a
line and 31 lines on a page but this would not allow for any
left hand margin for binding and at 31 lines per page the
set up of the embosser would have to be very accurate to
make sure that the extra line did not go over the edge of
the page. (Our machines are used by multiple users so we
find it better to have a default that has a built in
tolerance.)

Although I usually emboss my material on a Thiel X3 there
could be the odd time when I use one of our other embossers.
As I teach Mathematics the formatting of pages can be
crucial and I do not create my Duxbury files with any
particular embosser set, but have it set to a "generic"
or "no target embosser". So I would appreciate 13 inch paper
built into these embosser settings as well.

For my use it is important that the (38,30) set up I have
created my documents in is not changed by the person who
embosses my file. 

Under 10.5 the "no target embosser" seems more flexible in
being able to set any parameters for the line length and
lines per page. 10.6 is less flexible and seems to restrict
these settings to certain page sizes.

David Spybey and others have expressed concern about the
variety of form

sizes built into DBT 10.6. David Spybey likes to use 13 inch
paper. He would like to see 13 inch paper built into more
embossers.

We would like to do this.

If you know the maximum number of lines per page that you
can get on your embosser on 13 inch paper, please e-mail me
directly at david@xxxxxxxxxx
