    Despite specifying "N" (and DEVICE-06) for HoldSlip preview appears with wrong printer


    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct, Direct, Local, Total Care



    Despite the fact that the PC  .\Circ\tab\print.ini file has: 

     HoldSlip 00 N P holdslip.prn DEVICE-06 

    -- indicating no print preview and DEVICE-06 as the device to be printed to --, the print preview appears, and the printer in the dropdown is *not* DEVICE-06.  It has to be changed every time to the DEVICE-06 printer.


    In the v.22 System Librarian’s Guide - Printing Part, it says: 

    "In Circulation, the HoldLetter, ReturnHold and PhotoLetter functions produce two printouts if the delivery type is pickup, column 6.1 is reserved for the Device ID of the printout to be placed with the patron letter and column 6.2 is for the Device ID of the printout of the item slip." 

    Specifying "DEVICE-06" in column 6.2 of the HoldLetter, ReturnHold and PhotoLetter lines corrected the problem.
