When you are printing a report you are given several options including one to ‘Align’ the reports.
This option gives you the ability to make minor adjustments to where the page prints. This give you more accuracy when putting information on pre-printed stationary.
Aligning a report is very simple and is just a matter of adjusting some values before printing. Firstly, open up ‘Reports’ and select the report that is required. Then, when you are prompted with the ‘Selection Criteria’ screen select the ‘Align Printer’ button.
Note: Not all reports will have this option, this is because it's only for reports that can be printed on a pre-printed template.
Both the left and top margin can be moved in a + and – value:
- To move the left margin right, change the left margin amount by a: + value (Positive), for example: 0.222
- To move the left margin left, change the left margin amount by a: – value (Negative), for example: -0.222
- To move the top margin down, change the top margin amount by a: + value (Positive), for example: 0.322
- To move the left margin up, change the top margin amount by a: – (Negative), for example: -0.322
Clicking ‘Save’ will remember and set these settings for this report for the future.
You can click ‘Reset’ at any time, to clear any changes and revert back to your previously saved settings.
The alignment settings will be saved for that particular type of report, so each report can be aligned independently.
The Align Printer does have two different appearances within the software depending on the report selected.
