4.  CONFIGURING CUSTOM IMAGES

There are 3 Images that you can customize on this device.  Once the device has been installed properly and a test signature has been run through the System, 3 new files will appear in the Crystal PM folder.

1) screen_saver.bmp - This is the screen that is displayed when the device is not currently being used.  Many offices display a custom promotion.

2) sigBox.bmp - This is the signature image on the bottom of the tablet.

3) thankyou.bmp - Displayed after a Signature is captured. 

You can modify these images, but keep them the same size and type.
