I don't know about toning Liquid Emulsion, but my experience is that the
story about photographs with hardener in the fix not toning well is

That is, I used to do toning workshops in other people's photography
classes: The students would bring their previously printed photographs to
tone -- all of which had ALWAYS been fixed in hardening fix. I never once
saw any problem or failure to tone or anything else that could have been
due to the hardener. It's true that I never did a strictly controlled
test -- toning a print with hardener and one without side by side to check
for difference -- but there didn't seem any call for it.

Depending on the substrate, however, I understand that toning liquid
emulsion can be trickier -- it might in fact be *better* with hardener in
the fix..
