Printer Settings



Printer settings allow staff to set up printer configurations for specific types of print jobs for seamless printing. These settings can only be used with Hatch printing configured. If your library decides to use the standard print dialog for printing, you can manually control printer settings for each print request.

Printer Settings

  1. From Workstation Administration click Printer Settings
  2. Print contexts include Default, Receipt, Label, Mail, Offline
  3. For each print context set the default printer
    • once Hatch is installed available, networked printers will display in the list
    • For most libraries, set the Default printer to a stadard printer and Receipt to the Star printer
  4. For each print context set page and print settings

TIP Printer contexts are specified for each receipt/print template - the printer context MUST be specified in the template or all receipts will print to the Default printer. To edit templates, see: WebClientConfigurationPrintTemplates

Margins for receipts

The "default" setting for margins are generally very wide. For receipt printers, set the margins to "Equal". This creates a narrow margin that works well with bulleted lists. Some printers use the "Device Minimum". Selecting the wrong margin setting can cause receipts to not print. Set a margin then use the Test Print function. If nothing prints, change the margin and test again.

Paper type for receipts

Set the Paper Type to 3inch or 80mm width options for most Star printers.
