Ian,

I agree that this might be confusing.

But your analysis is also confused.  You aren't changing the settings "for
the wrong setup".  The settings in the dialog you are operating at this
point are constrained by, but are in no way affiliated with, the selected
configuration.  That is, your job in this dialog is to choose a
configuration and choose document settings that are compatible with it.  The
document settings don't affect the configuration.

Hi all,

using Beta 3, Build Date: 24 May 2004.

I'm just wondering if anyone else has got confused by the Embosser setup
dialogue.

1.  Choose Embosser Setup from either the Global or Document menus.

2.  Press the New button and enter a setup name.

3.  Choose an embosser, then press the OK button.

4.  Control returns to the Setup dialogue, with the focus on the New button.

at which point, the instinctive thing to do, is to tab through the rest of
the dialogue setting the lines per page etc.  Unfortunately, the selected
setup is not the one just created, but the one that was selected when the
New button was pressed.

Put simply, the instinctive thing to do is change the settings for the wrong
setup!

Maybe it is more obvious to sighted users that the settings are about to be
changed for the wrong setup, but for speech users I reckon it is too easy to
make a mistake.

Cheers.

Ian
