HALFPAGE.2

 

Configuring the LaserJet Side-by-Side Receipt with Version 9

 

The side-by-side receipt is available with HP LaserJet printers

and most HP Deskjet printers. Within Printer Redirection (option

8,B) from the Main Menu on the Customize Printer Destinations

page make sure that the Half-Page Receipt Printer line is set for

the correct HP printer entry on the list of printers.

 

On page 17 of Store Information Defaults you have to set the

correct position for the text to print on the right hand side.

Here are the values that worked at our office:

Left margin on right copy of 2-across ('Side-by-Side') receipts:  95

Company name margin for right copy of 'side-by-side' receipts:  . 55

Company address margin for right copy of 'side-by-side' receipts: 55

You may need to adjust these values to make your receipt fit just

right. If you leave these numbers 0, then the receipts will print

normally - with only 1-across.

 

The Left margin on right copy of 2-across receipts: controls the

horizontal position of the main portion of the receipt for the

right-hand copy. (customer name, stock number, etc). A larger

number moves to the right, a smaller number to the left.

 

The Company Name Margin and the Company address margin control where

your name and address are printed which you may have to vary to

correctly center them. If your company name is pre-printed, the

second two values are ignored since your company name and address

do not need to be printed by Shop-Pro.

 

In addition you may need to change the positions for the left-

side copy which are towards the top of page 17. Below are the

settings that seemed to work OK at our office: (If you have pre-

printed receipts, choose N for the Print Your Store Name question

and increase the Number of Blank Lines question by about 5.)
