When you click on Print the first time, the Printer Window appears with your default printer selected and Copies set to 1.
If necessary you may change the printer, tray, or paper size. Otherwise, simply click on OK to print your first sheet of cards. If you have not yet purchased the program, a message may appear warning you that the chosen funeral home location is unregistered. Do not be concerned about this message. It simply means that Sample will be printed on your output until we issue you a registration number on purchase. Click on OK in this warning.
After the first printing, the program will remember the printer you used previously rather than the Windows Default Printer. The program remembers separately the printer you last used for Prayer Cards, Memorial Folders, etc.
The Paper Feed setting moves the print on the page from side to side. The Vertical Adjustments moves the print on the page from top to bottom. If you are using a full letter sized form, it should not be necessary to change these settings. You will only change these settings when your paper is less than a full 8.5" wide or 11" tall.
Some printers feed narrow paper by leaving the left edge stationary and having a single slider on the right that moves in to hold the paper in place. Other printers have two sliders to feed the paper in the center. Still others keep the right edge stationary. Choose Left, Center, or Right depending upon your printer. Manual enables the Offset spin edit in the unlikely event you need to enter a more precise adjustment.
Some printers print on short paper as if missing paper is at the Leading edge of the sheet while others act as if the missing paper is at the Trailing edge. Vertical Adjustment compensates for this difference by moving the print from top to bottom. Again, Manual enables the Offset spin edit in the unlikely event you need to enter a more precise adjustment.
Note that when we say top to bottom or side to side, we mean with respect to the direction the paper is moving through the printer and not as you look at the finished product. Prayer Cards print landscape (sideways in the printer) which means that while the Vertical Adjustment is in the direction of the paper travel, it will move the print side to side as you look at the finished cards. Memorial Folders print portrait and there Vertical Adjustment moves top to bottom as you look at the finished cards. We have found a number of printers that require the Vertical Adjustment to be set on Trailing for Prayer Cards and Leading for Memorial Folders. While this sounds complicated, once you have these settings the way you want them, the program will remember them for the next time.
