10.2 allows you to change the background image, turn different elements on/off, and change content of some but not all text fields. It does not allow control over typeface, size, or attributes. As long as the text does not need to change, you could add it to the background image.

Then it will take two upgrades, first to 10.0 or 10.1, and take a backup before you do, and include version digits in the filename to remind you in case you need to downgrade and restore the config, ie, ZD1200-9-13-3-0-164-config.bkup

It has been an annoyance since the beginning of time that ZDs don't include the version number in the file name.  We like to append the version to the end so that we don't loose the date:  ZD1200_db_051019_19_00 (9.13.3).bak

Hi David,
   You see your config's have ZD name and Date/Time details, and/but/so it has always been Tech Support's "Best Practices" to include some digits regarding the version.  I don't think the developers will throw in version, but you could ask your SE to file a Field Request!
