Is there some hidden setting or variable I can modify to print the two copies on the one page?
I have tried setting the print settings to print two copies per page in the printer setup and then just printing two copies, but no dice.
Anyone out there know a way of making the computer obey my plans of world domination via duplication of print jobs?
A few years ago, I had figured out exactly how to do this for a client who wanted two copies of their QB invoice printed, portrait mode (2-up) on a single piece of paper. They bought special laser-perf paper that you could separate down the middle. Two mini-invoices.
Lately, a customer of theirs learned what they were doing and their accountant, a QB Pro advisor, could not ever figure it out either. So, they contacted me, and of course, after all these years, I didn't remember what I had done to make it work!
I looked over the printer properties. 2 COPIES, COLLATED. 2 PAGES PER SHEET (2-UP). Same settings but I would get the familiar 2 pieces of paper printed with one mini-invoice on the left of each page.
Today, I remembered what I did! It was actually info from another QB support doc
that makes it work.
Follow the instructions in the support doc. Simply add the line to your WPR.INI file, and VOILA! You get two invoices printed on one page!
Hopefully this helps someone.
