For many years,
While most of the time this wasn’t an issue, it was the cause of many headaches for users where the use of a specific printer was needed, say for instance, printing accounts payable or payroll checks to a specific printer with check stock loaded.
The scenario is always the same, work all day to prepare the necessary batches for printing, think you have everything all set, click print, and now you’re printing to your “default” printer and not the printer loaded with your check stock, all because you forgot to change the printer. Off to the shredder you go!
Here is the new feature as demonstrated from the Edit Check Batch window. I’ve selected the vendor and associated invoices that I want to cut checks for and click the Print Check button. I’m prompted with the normal “Print Payables Checks” window, click the Print button, and on the Report Destination window select Printer and OK. And the magic happens! I’m now prompted with the Print window I love to see! I can change my printer from my default to my actual check printer!
Keep in mind that this is still a Beta version, but my hope is that this feature makes it into the production version once released.
