As a Mathematics teacher I use Duxbury frequently. We do have a Tiger
but my use of it is limited and I have not found it as easy to use. In
particular I have found it difficult to create of a multiple paged
document with diagrams in it. I would expect to find this task easier if
the Tiger was directly supported within DBT. So I, for one, would be
very pleased to see graphics supported within DBT.

Michael,

Tigers, and the drivers that come with them, are very good at producing
graphics.

But DBT doesn't directly support that.

The problem for us has simply been lack of consumer demand.  There's
nothing
about the Tiger that would prevent us supporting graphics within DBT,
but we
haven't heard much call for it.

Are you saying that the Tiger driver will not support graphics, or that
the
implementation of graphics is incompatible with the driver for the
Tiger?
The main reason we purchased a Tiger embosser was to produce graphics.
If we
cannot produce graphics inline with text this will severely limit its
usefulness.
