Configuring the LaserJet Side-by-Side Receipt with Version 9
(Settings tweaked for Deskjet with standard font)
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.
When you print a sales receipt you will choose the Half-Page option.
On page 17 of Store Information Defaults you customize the positions
to fit different sizes of receipt. Here are the standard settings

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.
If you leave the "right copy" 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.
