Three ways to help prevent gibberish printing on forms

If your mailing statement, 8125, and CASS Reports print out with garbage on those reports, these changes may help print those reports successfully:

In the Print Presort window, click on Print Reports. Here are a few options that can help with the strange characters: Try unchecking the Printer Prompt box if that's checked. Some users reported that having this checked caused strange characters to appear.

Also, you can get properties on your printer driver (Start > Printers and Faxes, then right click on your printer) and turn spooling off. That may help as well.

If those fail, then I recommend checking the Create PDF box and uncheck the Preview and Printer Prompt boxes. Click Print. When you're returned to the Print Presort window, click on the presort path link. That will open your presort folder, where you'll see a file named edocumentation.pdf. Open that file then print it, and that will print successfully.
