Rotation on the TS is currently not supported.

Interesting.  Do all databases you create have the oddball page numbers?  If
so, create a minimal example and send the .dbf to the bugtrack list and I'll
look at it.   Be sure to include details like whether it only happens when
using rotation.

I have seen this too.  I'll try to track it down.

Open the file ..\GEMS\TSText\1033\RVD_NoVotesInstructions.rtf with
MS-WordPad (not Word) and edit it to taste.  A dialog will be added to GEMS
to override these file some time in the future.

Edit the files in the TSText directory under the language (1033 english,
1034 spanish) with MS-WordPad.

Just add the headers as usual.  They will currently be ignored by the TS.
We will add support for headers on the TS once I figure out how that used to

Just to let everyone else on the support list know, GEMS 1.9.5 and
AccuVote-TS 3.4.1 are not yet released.  We will do an official release when
Whitman returns.  At that time I will outline what features are not
currently supported with the integrated system.
