David,

Should not the binding margin be set to 4 in either case?  The binding
margin in the "outer shell" may be restricted by the embosser setup; it is
never interpreted as an additional margin.  Right?

A question:

You clearly want a left margin of 4 spaces. Is this provided by the
embosser?
Or is the work to be done by DBT?

If you have programmed into your embosser a left margin of 4, then say so in
the "middle tab"
of the embosser module. In the "outer shell" of the embosser module, say you
want a carriage width of 40, and no binding margin.

If you have **NOT** programmed in a left margin, then leave the "middle tab"
alone.In the "outer shell", say you want a carriage width of 40, and a
binding margin of 4.
