CODESOFT printing experience can be customized by the user so the program behaves in a specific manner.  The customization is done via Tools / Configuration / Printing.

In the dropdown box for the Format section, there are four possible values:

  1. Direct:  Allows a single label to be printed without displaying the Print dialog box.
    Command: File > Print.
  2. Simple: Allows the Print dialog box to be viewed in simple mode, with the basic printing options.
    In this dialog box, the More button allows you to switch to Expanded mode.
    Command: File > Print > Set the values required > OK
  3. Search in database:  Allows you to display the Go to a record in a database dialog box.

NoteWhen the format is set to Search in database or Database query result but the document is not connected to a database, the Simple dialog box is displayed when a print command is launched.
