Hi Hal! Gotta question, is there a feature to tell me the actual weight in pounds (or kilo's) based on the number of sheets the job will run? We seem to be shipping a lot of jobs by FedEx and I thought maybe MF could tell me an approximate weight for shipping. I know, quit giving you more stuff to do.

Hi Craig! Yes, there is a way in MF to find out how much a job will weigh. Open the Paper Pricer (F11 on the main menu), enter the type, weight and cut size of the paper, then enter the quantity. The parent size doesn't matter. If the black upper panel shows "per 1,000," click on the button so it shows "per 100 lbs." You'll see the total number of pounds in the grey window. Works for everything but envelopes.

BTW, don't quit now, I can use all the feedback and suggestions I can get! Hope all is well in Ohio. We're having a great summer in New York.
