Skip labels preventing printing

Post by KA1WPM » 07 Jul 2015, 01:54

Hi Folks,

Tonight was the first time I tried printing QSL labels with version 1.22. Everything works as normal if I leave the number of labels to skip at 0. If I change it to anything other than 0, the pdf preview isn't created and the "QSO update on database" gives a different result from when I leave the number of labels to skip at 0.

Cheers,

I'm working on.
It's probably related to some changes made lately to manage the roll printers.

Thank you both! No inconvenience at all. I'm just happy it turned out to be a real issue and not operator error. :)

There is a workaround that is also one of the work modes allowed by the label Printing:
(this applies also to users that doesn't want to reuse paper sheets partially printed)

1) select your QSO to be printed as usual
2) make all selections and proceed until the PDF print
3) in case you have 5 full pages and 1 half page printed, print only the first 5 pages, and discard (do not print) the last page
4) before applying changes to QSO (update status) DESELECT the qso that you discarded from print (the half page)
5) update the status of printed QSO

The discarded QSO will be analyzed on the next label Printing roundtrip
