To activate the new 2-across half-page receipts on a laser printer, you will have to run

a utility called HALFP2. To access Utilities, choose File, Miscellaneous, Utilities (from

the Shop-Pro Main Menu)

 

Here are the values that worked at our office:

  Margin for 2-across half-page receipts:  95

  Company Name Margin for 2-across half-page receipts:  55

  Company Address Margin for 2-across half-page receipts:  55

 

You may need to adjust these values to make your receipt fit just right. These three

values affect the horizontal positions for the right-hand receipt.

 

The Margin for 2-across half-page receipts: controls the position of the main portion of

the receipt. Enter a larger number to move to the right, a smaller number to move to

the left.

Also, you will need to make other adjustments to the format of the Half-Page receipt

From the Printer Redirection section (option 8,B from the Main Menu), you will need to

specify printer driver #28 (or whatever the number is for the one called Landscape HP

LaserJet) for Half-Page Receipts If using a laser printer

 

If using an HP Deskjet (inkjet), select #29  (or whatever the number is for the one

called Landscape HP DeskJet)

 

However, if you donþt see the above entries in your list of printer drivers, then youþll

need to do a one-time addition to your printer drivers list. To do this, access the DOT

PROMPT (from the Shop-Pro Main Menu, choose File, Miscellaneous Options, Dot

Prompt) From the DOT prompt type these five lines, pressing Enter after each:

 

USE PRINTERS

MRECC=RECC()

APPE FROM ..\PRINTERS FOR PRINTER_NO >27 .OR. PRINTER_NO >MRECC

USE

QUIT

Then when you go to Printer Redirection you should see the new Landscape entries in

your list of printers. (however, the numbers may not be 28 & 29 so youþll need to

check the actual number before you assign this number to the Half-Page Receipt

Printer selection.
