Meaning, color or gray scale on color printers, print quality on inkjets;
best, normal or draft, orientation; portrait or landscape and so on.
Selecting a printer goes along because checks go to the metallic printer and
other things go elsewhere, ok.
I never saw in Quick Books or in M.Y.O.B. Or any other off shelf application
the necessity for these settings selections. For a custom program I also
sell my client the Brooklyn bridge. (I mean not the Brooklyn bridge, because
I bought it already LOL).

Maybe I don't know how to use it, but for what I need it I don¹t see a way
it should work. E.g. My app. Gets turned off probably ... I don't know when,
very seldom.
They are many meetings appointments, schedules that are entered and the
system has to pop em out as the time goes whithout button pressing and at
the same time that same app. Is being used heavy for other things memo's,
invoicing,inventory and so on. My whole business runes on that one
application. I thought to use separate stand alones for certain tasks but
wouldn't do the trick.

I'm big enough to admit if I'm wrong but it has to be proven to me first.
Thanks, Hershel Fisch
