  • printing problems in 4.2

    I'm new to the CMM and trying to learn 4.2. When I try to print my report using the standard templates it tries to send it to the printer as a 8.15 x 10.65 paper size instead of 8.5 x 11. Any idesa how to fix it???? Thanks for all the help in advance!!!

    Hi Paul,

    I believe you can modify this by modifying some properties of the report template you are using.

    Try this:
    1. Select File | Reporting | Edit | Report Template. An Open dialog will appear.
    2. Right-click on the template you are going to modify and select Properties. Ensure that the Read-Only check box is cleared (Or if you don't want to remove the Read-Only protection that comes with all standard templates, work with a copy of the template).
    3. Open the selected template. You will now be in the Report Template Editor.
    4. Right click on the editor to access the Properties dialog box.
    5. From the drop down list of objects, select TheView0. This allows you to change the properties of the main editing area.
    6. Modify the Height and Width to read 1100 and 850 respectively.
    7. Save your template.
    8. Redraw your report using your changed template.
    9. Print and test
    Let me know if this works. Good Luck!
