Hi George:

I tried setting up and removing some embossers to gage where the Blazer
would be on the list. I was not allowed to remove any. When I changed the
top margi from 0 to 2, I received the message
Paraphrase: Dbt had made the appropriate adjustments, which would profoundly
effect any further embossing. Hiowever when I went in again, it was zero as
your prediction.

With 12 inch paper, values you stated in effect, DBT verified the values had
been excepted, but in its wisdom changed the top margin to one.

Would you like me to try this in the old dbt for dos.

Apart from a more elaborate confirmation message, I replicated your results.

Hope this helps

Jack
