You will love the new Report Viewer in Elliott V8.
Elliott 7 uses Notepad to view reports printed to the screen. If you choose to print a hard copy from Notepad, the format is often printed incorrectly. Emailing the report or saving it as a Spooled Report can be difficult. As a result, most find it easier to print the same report again from Elliott to the final destination.
Version 8 will now give you the option to view a report printed to the screen using the new Report Viewer. Unlike Notepad, the new Report Viewer is optimized for Elliott report viewing. Report Viewer can print a hard copy in the right format of the report viewed. The report can be saved as a Spooled Report if you decide to keep it permanently. You can also email the report directly from the Report Viewer.
The following is a list of Report Viewer highlights:
- Choose your favorite fonts to display
- Enlarge or shrink the Report Viewer window with the font size automatically adjusted
- An easily accessible search function
- Copy and paste in traditional mode or block mode
- Fine control of paging
- Print to the printer in the correct format
- Save directly to Spooled Reports
- Email reports
