All I will say is, that I agree with David's thinking here.

My personal preference would be to prompt the user to select
an embosser setting after selecting a Template.

In David's case, that could simply be "No Target Embosser".

Dave, Tesfaye, George (et al),

As you've all heard, I'm not keen to add UI during beta.
But, if it will help resolve the apparent disagreement among
different parties, we could add a prompt before a template
is written.

Peter,

        Just thought I'd quick weigh-in on this issue. I
think it would be better if the templates did not contain
document dimension and target embosser information. Being a
multiple user organization, our transcribers do not do the
actual embossing and are often unaware which of the several
embossers that we have will be used for embossing the file.
If the templates store the embosser information and that is
not the embosser that is actually used, I find it causes
problems. Specifically with carriage widths, form lengths,
paper sizes etc.

-Dave

Peter this is something I am certainly in favor of.
