Print My in-Stock Paper


Posted: 25 Feb 2006 04:27 pm


Do I have a choice of not using the Paper Pricer? It seems that it is mostly for parent sizes and carton pricing. I have entered my paper stocks in My Store "My In-Stock Paper" and I would like to print "a list of" My In-Stock Paper and pricing, but it will only print out the first category (writing). The tab for MY Stock Paper is grayed out, so what am I doing wrong?

Lu, the Paper Cutter (F10), Paper Pricer (F11), and Run Pricer (F12) are independent of the Estimating System. They're merely accessories. You're free to use them or not use them - your choice.

To print a list of all categories, go to Print -> List of . . . -> My In-Stock Paper, which you've probably done already. In the window that opens, check the box "All Types." That will put a check mark in front of all paper categories. To select individual categories, simply click on each category (Writing, Book/Text, and so on). That will de-select "All Types," so Morning Flight prints only the categories you selected.

I'm not sure I understand about the tab for My In-Stock Paper being grayed out. Are you referring to the three tabs in the Print Paper window? Some In-Stock Paper is mandatory and can't be deleted (such as white Copy Bond, for instance), so the In-Stock Paper file should never be empty.

When I go to Print - List of - In Stock paper - both the My in-Stock paper and Buy-as-needed Paper tabs are grayed out. All of my stocks are in My Store "My In-Stock Paper." Under the Print option, even though My In-Stock Paper is grayed out, the first and only category shows up as "writing" and MF will print out that category only. There is not an option of "all." I'm using version 2006.2 If I upgrade to 2006.3 will that fix it? Will I loose all my configurations if I upgrade?

Lu, I was able to duplicate and erase the bug you described. You'll need to download the new version 2006.4 to make the In-Stock tab visible. This bug only shows itself when the Buy-As-Needed Paper file is completely empty.

Installation of the upgrade will preserve all entries and settings you've made, but it's a good idea to back up the *.TPS data files in the MorningFlight directory, just in case. Also, make sure you install the upgrade in the same directory in which you originally installed the program (C:\Progam Files\PrintFire\MorningFlight by default).

Thanks for the catch.
