Question / Problem: 

How to configure a KTA 7.6 or higher Scan Form to control the scanner's Imprinter Settings

Answer / Solution: 

KTA can be configured to control the scanner's Imprinter settings.  This can be useful for storing the last-used Imprinter Counter value and using that value to seed the starting Imprinter Counter value in the next scanning session.
