Hi Peter,

Thanks. I'm not clear about what you're saying, because the graphic _does_ emboss high-density dots on our machine. (It also embosses the page number in high density, which makes it look squished.) I chalk the whole thing up to being outdated. :)

Lissa,

It likely in this case is a limitation of the embosser.  We have an Express
(100? 150?) here, which doesn't do high resolution graphics.  None of the ET
models support low resolution graphics.  ET has supported high resolution
for years, but your embosser, like ours, is probably presumed by DBT to be
too old for the high resolution mode.

Even so, you should be able to use DBT's page numbering.  That issue is
essentially independent of the other issue.  The only limitation that you're
supposed to encounter is that the graphic image and a text line (for the
page number) must both fit on the page, so you may need to make the image a
bit smaller.

Hi Peter,

Thank you. I'm guessing it's the limitation of the embosser. But, that means
we won't be able to use DBT's page numbering, we'll have to put the page
number in by hand. (Not a big deal when you're already working in Quick Tak
anyway.)

Lissa,

The most useful thing would be to send the .SIG and the .DXP file,

off-list.

The talking problem should be better with beta 9, which I hope to have posted tomorrow or Wednesday. The other issues are ones that I'll have to explore.

It is a truism that DBT restricts what graphics resolution are available for any given graphics image, based on two criteria:

1. The limitations of the embosser (or, more properly, what we believe the limitations to be), and 2. Whether the image will fit on a single page when a new resolution is selected. DBT will not allow you to put an image into a resolution that causes it to fill up more than a page.

Hi David and Peter,

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner; I just tested a .sig file on Beta
8 (not Bart, but a map of the Sudan I just created in Quick Tak) on my Express 150.


First, it continued to recite all the settings as before.

Second, it embossed on the left side of the page (wide 11-inch) regardless of whether I set it to left, center, or right align.

And finally, Peter, I know that you told me to set it to medium width dots, but actually, that was the only option available, the other two options where greyed out.

(So, for the moment, I'm sticking with copyx, heh!)

I can send you the .sig if you'd like.

Thanks!

Lissa
