    F11 and export to Excel does not work


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


    In former Aleph versions we could use F11 to make a printscreen of a certain selection (patron list or order list) and then with a right click make an export to Excel.
    Now, this export function does not work anymore (with Aleph 20).


    This functionality seems to have disappeared since IE8 and it's rather a Windows issue than an Aleph issue. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do to restore this functionality.



    Possible workaround if you require 'Copy & Paste' functionality from lists before installing 22.1 Minor Release:

    - Use F11 to print a list (with option 'Preview')
    - The HTMLPrint preview is opened. In parallel a temporary *.html file is saved to the PC (usually (Missing file: File:C:/temp/Aleph)C:\temp\Aleph as defined in the alephcom.ini file).
    - Open this file with a browser to copy relevant text parts
