Hi, Tom,

I'm not George, but I have a suggestion.  Open the document using Word and
make sure page numbering is turned on.  I think page numbering needs to be
active in the Word document before the Duxbury feature will work.  Now,
open the file again with DBT using the Textobbk format template and the
print page numbers should be marked.

Thanks for the info George. You seem to be the Duxbury Guru, do you have any 
ideas on how to fix the following problem? I'm currently taking a class from 
Carroll Tech on using the Duxbury Braille Translator. Although I have used 
Duxbury for 4 years, there still is a lot I don't know. I'm working on a 
lesson, which involves using the word importer under the global menu. This is 
supposed to allow the reference page numbers from one of their downloaded files 
to appear in Duxbury. After I checked the make page break box, when I try and 
open the document I get an error message that says, "Unable to create page map. 
Print page breaks will not be marked." I was told that the first time I tried 
this Duxbury would bring up  MS Word and I would have to enable macros, This 
never happened, although a previous user could have enabled this, therefore I 
would not see it again.

  Thanks in advance,
  Tom

Just to expand a little on this topic, 8 dot braille is
indeed more commonly used with braille displays, although a
number of European country users particularly do emboss hard
copy.

There is a detailed explanation at http://8dotbraille.com
and a Google search for "8 dot braille" will provide more
sources of information.
