Dear Saaqib,

To open a BRF in Duxbury with original formatting, you'll first need to go to the Formatted Braille Importer dialog box under the Global menu. Check the checkbox that says "Read formatted Braille without interpretation". This will make it so that Duxbury doesn't automatically add page numbers that are already in the BRF, among other formatting changes. Checking this box will hide all the other formatting options that come after it when unchecked. Then open the BRF using Duxbury (use the "Open With" submenu under the file's context menu to find Duxbury). The Import File dialog will appear, after which you can simply press Enter to accept the options. Hopefully this is helpful.

Thank you,
