    Pastel Invoicing

    Does anybody have some suggestions ?

    I want to do the following:
    To print 2 half size Tax Invoice and Copy Tax invoice on one regular A4 sheet, however not by changing the printer settings because I print other documents on the same printer that need to be regular A4.

    So I have to achieve this either through the use of Pastel's forms designer or a utility that will change the printer setting for only this particular document.

    All this in an effort to save a tree !

    Hmmm, an interesting one, Martin!

    Essentially, you need to be able to have more than one Page Header, Page Footer and Detail on the same form file - if I can figure out how to do that, if it is at all possible, then the problem is solved.

    Martin we use fineprint it cost US$50 when we bought it. You can do 1 up, 2up 4up etc.
    We use it for booklet printing assembling different files into 1 print job. Another feature I like is print an email to it and you can delete the last few pages and print the rest. There is a free version which prints a website address on it.
    Or you can print to PDF then print multiple pages per sheet from reader.
    Only stress when you can change the outcome!

    Now that's a good idea! Nothing like thinking out the box...

    Martin.
    Download primopdf and install that. This then installs as a print driver. I suggest you open a directory called PDF and place the PDFs created there.
    What you then do is when printing select Primopdf as your printer then a dialogue will come up and you can name the file and place in the "PDF" directory. You will then get a PDF open in Adobe reader, Then select print and in the dialogue look for a dropdown button in the middle for multiple pages per sheet. Look at this as it then depends on what printer you use to get the correct layout to print 2 pages per sheet.

    I assume Pastel prints both invoice and copy invoice together.

    It sounds complicated but becomes second nature.

    Ian,

    I have installed the program and works well except for...................it seems to forget to use "Landscape" every time.
    I need to change with every invoice I make. Any fix on this ?

    In Acrobat reader is autorotate ticked in the print dialogue?

    The trick maybe is to leave the X by X boxes blank.
