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. If

your company name is pre-printed, the second two values are ignored.

 

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.

 

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

 

 

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

receipt þ however those changes can be done from the standard screen þ page 15

of Store Information Defaults. Below are the settings that seemed to work OK at

our office.

 

If you have preprinted receipts, choose N for the Print Your Store Name

question and increase the Number of Blank Lines question by about 5. Also, The

left margin for company name and address are irrelevant for you, so you needn't

adjust them.
