I am a frequent user of Quicktac (which I learned at the NBA Conference in 2006). I have been using an Index Basic embosser for several years, and was quite proficient with it. It recently broke and I have started using a Juliet PRO 60 embosser. I am having alot of trouble getting the braille to line up on the new embosser (and I do not have a manual for it). My biggest frustration is with Quicktac. When I try to emboss, it shrinks the braille to about 1/2 of its size on the screen.
Does anyone have experience using Quicktac and the Juliet emobosser? Any help with the settings would be greatly appreciated.
You might go online at http://www.brailler.com (this is enabling's website). you might be able to download a manual for the Juliet Pro 60. I use the same embosser and I have embossed using quick tac on it. Never had a problem. Make sure that your embosser is the chosen embosser in your Page Setup in Quick Tac. Page Setup is under the File menu.
I have the embosser selected under page set-up, but when I open a new document it does not show the placeholders (individual dots). When I go to View, that is not an option I can select. The only way I can get the placeholders is if I have the view set to 100%, and I find that very hard to work with. I was used to the full-page view, so I can see my whole drawing at once. Hope this makes some sense.
Can you tell me what other settings you have for Quicktac with the Juliet Pro (Resolution, etc...). I think it's just a matter of me getting used to the new embosser. I will visit the website you recommended and see what I can find. Thanks.
