Jack,

The need to have installed printer drivers for some models is indeed related
to USB, which DBT won't drive directly.

But I'm not sure what "problem" you're driving at; there are certainly some
glitches right now, but, as far as I'm aware, no problem that we won't work
through, and none related specifically to USB.

Hold me up to ridicule, by all means, but could the problems with the global
embosser dialog have to do with usb, vs serial devices. Just a thought
however misguided.
