HALFPAGE

 

              Formatting the Half-Page Receipt

 

This receipt format is called 'half-page' for the reason that is

was originally created to fit on a half-size sheet. However,

there are now so many options for you to modify the format that

this receipt will now print on virtually any size paper (and now

it is hardly ever used on an actual half-size sheet!)

 

First you need to select the correct printer driver from the

Printer Redirection screen. From the Maintenance Menu, select

Printer Redirection, then from the list of printer drivers, see

which printer number most closely matches the printer you are

going to use, then on the next screen (Customize Printing

Destinations) type in the printer number next to the prompt for

Half-Page Receipt Printer.

 

Next you can enter the formatting options for the receipt. Choose

Store Information Defaults from the Maintenance Menu and page-

down to the screen titled Enter the defaults appropriate for your

Half-Page receipts (often around page 17)
