Thanks for this, Mike. However, your message has brought up another issue, which may well simply be local. BRF extension are listed in My Computer, Folder Options, File Types, but is not associated. And, when I go to associate the extension, Duxbury does not appear in the list of Programs. Any thoughts? George. ________________________________ From: duxhelp-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:duxhelp-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Mike Gorse Sent: 07 July 2006 15:17 To: duxhelp@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [duxhelp] Re: Brf files Hi George, I'm not sure where Jacqui read that, either, but she is right that it refers to DBT 10.6 not automatically registering .brf with Windows to open these files in DBT as was done by earlier versions. A user can manually register .brf files in Windows to open in DBT if desired. -Mike ----- Original Message ----- From: George Bell <mailto:george@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> To: duxhelp@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Friday, July 07, 2006 5:10 AM Subject: [duxhelp] Re: Brf files Hi Jacqui, I'm not sure where you read that. Please let me know, just in case we need to revise the documentation. The following comes from the Help files, which were reviewed by Peter. George. Global: Formatted Braille Importer... Keystroke: b from Global menu The Formatted Braille Importer dialog is used to inform DBT about the dimensions and page numbering conventions of the braille files you wish to import. DBT can import BRF files from older DBT versions, as well as PokaDot and other braille files. Note that DBT uses these settings for import analysis only. In other words, the incoming file will be reformatted to the dimensions set in the Global Embosser Setup dialog or template, using the numbering scheme set in the Document Menu, regardless of what numbers are filled in here. ________________________________ From: duxhelp-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:duxhelp-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Jacqui Loughrin Sent: 07 July 2006 02:44 To: duxhelp@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [duxhelp] Brf files Hi, Thanks for allowing us access to the beta version of 10.6. We are very pleased with the new features in 10.6, i.e. undo/redo, autosave and change case. The margin bell position is a nice little extra feature! We also note that numbered lines and ref.pg.no. have both been fixed. We wonder if you could clarify any issues there might be with regard to .brf files. All our braille files which have been produced using DBT 10.3 and 10.5 have also been archived as .brf files to ensure future compatibility. Can we be sure that these will open in 10.6 and retain their original formatting? We read that 10.6 will no longer "recognise" brf files but perhaps this just refers to the recognition of extensions in Windows. We emboss archived files on a daily basis so this is quite an important issue for us. Thanks. Jacqui Loughrin Lee Fung Royal NZ Foundation of the Blind Auckland, New Zealand.
