11. Fixed a problem with sending documents directly to the PERMS Integrator printer.  The files were not being created correctly.  You can now print ANY document to the PERMS Integrator printer and it will be converted to a TIFF image and placed in the C:\Program Files\PERMSIntegrator\Exports folder.
12. Various sligh UI tweaks to make the interface easier to use.
