Hello George,

The Index/Drivers issue is unlikely to be one that Christian would have
encountered, because he has presumably had Index drivers installed
throughout the process.  The problem, as you know, is related to the
DBT-directed installation of those drivers.

The 12-inch form issue remains a puzzlement.

Hi Christian,

Re your second point below.

So it's perhaps not my imagination after all!  I found that if I select
Narrow Width, 12 inch long, in Global Embosser Setup, it would revert to
Wide Width, 12 inch long.

Does your emb.elt file only contain form sizes for 12 inch?

The strange thing is that I do not appear to get this behaviour on my Vista
Ultimate system.

Can I also ask if you have you also had an opportunity to try installing an
Index embosser with the new Version 12.0.1 firmware?  We have just received
a shipment of these, and they complain about either a missing IBBASICD.GPD
or IBEVEREST.GPD file.

We have performed some basic tests with a revised set of Index/Drivers
within DBT, and they now appear to install O.K.  However, while the Everest
appears to be O.K., there does appear to be a one cell skew between front
and back pages with the Basic D.

I must stress that our tests are as yet incomplete.

All the best,

George.

Hello Peter and all:

Happy new year to you, to Duxbury staff and to your family and friends.

Once the SR1 installed, I noticed 2 ennoying behaviors:

1. My shortcut preferences aren't restored. For example, I set [top] for the
shortcut key Ctrl+Enter; but all these custom parameters were lost.

2. Much more irritating:
In Global / Embosser Setup, I had set as follows:
* Index Everest D
* Wide Width, 12 Inch Long, Braille Paper
* Characters per line: 30
* Rightmost cell placement: 30

But now "Characters per line" is set to 40.

DBT should restore ALL settings as they were defined in the dialog box.

Best wishes.

Christian

Beta Testers,

With apologies for the delay, I've just posted DBT 10.6 SR1
Release
Candidate 1.  We are skipping directly to the release
candidate stage this
time because the software appears to us to be
ready-to-release, and we are
eager to keep the beta testing relatively short.

Because the package posted is a release candidate, it is set
to overwrite
DBT 10.6 if that is already installed.  I don't believe that
this will be a
problem.  But, if you find that the new version has a
problem that prevents
you getting work done, you can remove it and re-install DBT
10.6 from your
CD or from the web site.

Barring any problems, you should just install the Service
Release from
http://partners.duxburysystems.com/beta.asp?product=DBT over
your existing
installation.

There are, however, several pre-release features in need of
more extensive
testing for later release, so there is plenty to explore.
You can read more
about DBT 10.6 SR1 and the goals for the beta testing on the
beta home page
at http://partners.duxburysystems.com/beta.asp?product=DBT

Note that we have had to withdraw one feature previously
announced to this
list.  The SWIFT Word Add-In included with DBT 10.6 SR1 will
not explicitly
support the new user interface for Word 2007, though SWIFT
will operate in
Word 2007 (but expects in general to work with old-format
.doc files.)  This
bit of back-pedalling was disappointing for me personally,
but was required
to avoid further schedule slippage.  If any of you is
working with Word
2007, you can contact me for more details and I can make the
version of
SWIFT for the new Word 2007 user interface available to you;
it simply won't
be included in SR1.

Best wishes for a happy 2007!

- Peter
