The driver for the Tiger does not support graphics.
This is something we knew.

We need to make a way for the user to know.

We need a way to gracefully end the embossing job without error.

Good catch.

Recently we attempted this graphic on a Tiger Pro embosser and received
gibberish from the embosser. This worked fine with our Juliet Classic
embossers.

We have also found a location where an assert fails.
Steps to reproduce:
1. set up the paper size to a larger size then what is setup in the
driver.
2. say OK to the dialog complaining about not finding tiger.ini
3. press cancel on the dialog complaining about the driver paper size

Error message:
Embossing failed due to an error at line 1545 of file dxemb_job.c: The
data area passed to a system call is too small. [122/0x0000007a]
