[duxhelp] Re: Embosser Setup (again)

Does this have anything to do with factory templates being write protected.
I personally am glad, when experimenting embosser configurations to find
them in the custom templates I have created.

I don't see how this could change unless document settings were stored
somewhere else, and that would seem to make things rather complicated.
