[GNC] Printer woes

James Fuller

I finally gave up looking for my missing backup files and re-entered the years transactions.  I copied the chart of accounts which did save some time.  Now I have a new problem.  
I attempted to print out a checking account transaction register and found that there is no printer icon shown.  What do you suppose would have caused that?  I can print the register to the screen as usual but can’t make a hard copy.  I’m using iteration 3.2 on a Win 7 machine.  The printer is a Brother wireless laser.  It is the exact setup that I have been running with Gnucash for the last couple of years.  I’m clueless.  I have been unable to find any reference to printer setup in the help screens and have never before needed to.  My workstation finds the printer as it will do a screen print of any open screen I’m using in Gnucash

Thanks in advance for your help,

James Fuller

Hi James,

With the register you want to print in front of you select
Reports->Account Report
for a printable version of that register.

Regards,

Geert

James,

Can't remember ever seeing a print option for the register window.It might
have existed befor the transaction report was created. The best way to
getsuch a report for a specific account is to use the transaction report ,
set the account to the account you desire and set the date range for the
dates required.If you require a running balance select the appropriate
options in the Edit->Report Options menu items. If you use it frequently
save a custom copy (Save Config button). It has a print button in the
toolbar to print it out and you can export it as a html file

Cheers
David Cousens

James, the typical flow in GnuCash and similar programs is that the chart
of accounts and various account registers and other things aren't
considered documents, so you can't directly print them.  Instead, you "run
a report".  That report is more like a document.  If a report is
satisfactory, you can print it, or save as a .PDF.

The icons along the top of the GnuCash window will change depending on what
tab is currently selected.  They are context specific.  When I click on
Accounts tab, the toolbar only shows 6 icons (none of them are about
printing).  When I'm viewing a checking register, a different set of icons
appear, 12 in total (still no printer icon).  When I view an invoice, or
report, a printer icon is shown.

I'm pretty sure you'll see that printer icon, you just need to run a report
first.




Kind regards,
