They just keep rolling in:
---------------------

To further refine some answers here about publishing, as mentioned, Print
Preview does require *either* a Print Composer add-on installed (and
licensed) on the client *or* access to the Pubishing Engine somewhere on
your network to use. If you have access to PE, you don't need the Print
Composer Add-on installed.

Without either of these options, your only output would be the "Editor View"
being sent to any installed print driver on your computer, which obviously
does NOT give you a "published" output. (Editor View is also sensitive to
which window the cursor is in, meaning if the cursor is in the docMap
window, that will be the output source.)

Assuming you can compose and get to Print Preview, the "View=> Options=>
Extended Pages" only shows you information on the printed page that oversets
the pageset. I've had oversets that were enough to fill 5 more pages run off
the bottom of the page without the system crashing. Point is that the option
won't prevent a crash in and of itself. Using this option is great if you
have data running off the bottom of the page due to some problem with your
stylesheet or the content and need to see it. It won't print, but you can at
least see it on the screen. However it makes navigation through the Print
Preview a bit more cumbersome. Normally, it is left off unless you
specifically need it.

The DCF file is only involved here with your original question about the
"allowComposeStylesheetList" option. This option set to "yes" will turn on a
drop-down list of available stylesheets to use at composition time. If set
to "no", there is no list and the default "print" stylesheet is used.
However, you won't get to the "Print Compose" dialog if you don't have one
of the above-mentioned composition options installed.
