I realize this is a list for testing rather than suggestions, but as a
follow-up....

If there is indeed going to be another beta release prior to SP2 going
public, and as long as you're changing the control related to marking print
page breaks anyway,  what about some minor language changes, such as:

1.  Rename "Print Page Breaks" to either "Mark Print Page Breaks"
(consistent with previous versions) or "Print Page Numbering"

2.  Change "ignore" to "Do not number"

3.  Change "Mark from Word document" to "Same as Word document" -- after all
whether you are marking only hard page breaks or all page breaks, you are
marking from the Word document.  This option is about preserving and
numbering all the breaks.

4.  Change "Treat hard page breaks as print page breaks" to "Ignore soft
page breaks when numbering"

Just my 2 cents worth....  Take care.

Joanie,

Thanks.  I'll have a look.

Aha.  That makes sense, thanks Peter.  Unless I'm missing something still, I
think I have found a bug since "Treat hard page breaks as print page breaks"
seems to produce the same results as "ignore." Steps to reproduce:

1.  In the Word Importer, be sure Preserve hard page breaks is checked and
select "treat hard page breaks as print page breaks"
2.  Import a document that has both hard and soft page breaks using the
textbook format 3.  Note that braille page numbers are at the bottom as
expected, but there is a complete absence of reference page numbers.

If I repeat those steps using the equivalent options in SP1 as described by
Peter (i.e. checking both Mark Print Page Breaks and Document is scanned),
reference numbers appear as expected.

Take care.
Joanie

Joanie,

"Treat hard page breaks as print page breaks" also implies "*Don't* treat
soft page breaks as hard page breaks".  DBT will insert a page break marking
only where there is a hard page break.  This is often useful when dealing
with files that have been scanned and converted by the OCR software into MS
Word format.  Selecting this option is exactly the same as checking both
"Mark Print Page Breaks" and "Document is Scanned" in earlier DBT versions.

The documentation is indeed still being updated.  For this reason, if for no
other, I do expect at least one more beta build before we release.

Subject: [duxhelp] Marking page breaks

Hi All.  I'm looking at the Word Importer dialog box and noticed the change
in the marking of print page breaks.  I'm puzzled by the option to "treat
hard page breaks as print page breaks."  At the risk of sounding dense, what
exactly does that mean?  In my testing thus far, selecting Ignore is the
equivalent of not checking what used to be the Mark Print Page Breaks
checkbox.  Selecting Mark from Word Document is the equivalent of checking
that checkbox.  When I select Treat Hard Page Breaks as Print Page Breaks,
Duxbury seems to behave as if I chose Ignore.  I looked in the
documentation, and that is labeled as a section that needs to be written.

Any clarification would be appreciated.  Take care.
Joanie
