Since the manual doesn't cover X/1-a and since the X/3  standard bears little 
relationship to X/1-a I didn't think to look there.  BTW the manual is a bit 
ambiguous, suggesting but not insisting that the "Info String" box on the 
prepress tab contain data.

Now I know the answer. But what about the next guy? If the "Save" button was 
left active but an error message popped up if it was pressed that would be 
more foolproof. (I am one fool who would have appreciated that approach.)

I apologize for the many posts I made earlier asking when the X/1-a format 
would be available.  It was hidden in plain sight.
