No you should not be concerned about it.  And I'm not saying that because
you want me to. <smile>

There are tons of dialog boxes in the Windows OS, and in various
applications, where a large number of changes can be made at once -- and
those changes cannot always be seen at once (like in a multi-page dialog).
It is assumed that the user realizes that a) they have changed things in
that dialog and b) that pressing OK will make those changes permanent.
While the reason things wouldn't be visible in the GES dialog is a bit
different, I believe the concept is the same.

Warren, Joanie, George, et al,

If we handle the Global Embosser Setup dialog as it's now evolving, the OK
button really becomes quite "loaded".  It will:

- Apply new default document settings for one or more embossers,
- Update the embosser list to include any new embossers, remove any that
were removed when operating the dialog, and update the definitions of any
embossers that were edited, and
- Select a default embosser (with all of its "sticky settings").

This is a lot for one OK button to do, especially considering that the first
two things suggest that OK can apply changes that are not visible on screen.

Should I be concerned about this?  (I'll certainly be grateful for an answer
of "No" -- it will save a lot of discussion.)
