When setting up and experimenting with your print configuration, remember that when you click the print button on the GTX toolbar, the printout is sent to your word processor and not directly to your actual printer, which allows you to try out various settings and evaluate them without initially committing the printout to paper. Also bear in mind that, depending on the number of fields, or data columns, that you select to be included in your printout, you may need to alter the Page Orientation to print in 'Landscape' rather than 'Portrait'.
As you can see from the example below, setup Printout allows you to specify not only your printout’s data content, but also the typeface, the font size, font style and colour, page orientation and size and other formatting choices such as blank lines and underlines.
The right side of the Setup Printout Parameters box, under the 'Sample' heading, shows the currently selected font types, sizes and styles for each category. For more on selecting fonts for the printout, see Selecting a Font
Start by removing the ticks from all the checkboxes, then in this order, tick: Race Info, Parameter Heading, Parameter Info, Horse, Form Heading and Form Info. You will see under the Order column on the left, that numbers will appear as you check the various sections. This indicates the order that these sections will appear on your printout.
Save Settings ------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Save Settings function allows you to create and save multiple print configuration files if you so wish. If you want only one print setup, it is OK to just use the current.pcf as your sole print configuration.
However, when you decide to create an additional printout configuration, you will need to save the 'current.pcf' with another name. The reason for this is that GTX uses only the 'current.pcf' as the print configuration file, no matter how many pcf files you have created. How it works is this: Say you have three print config files - 'abc.pcf', 'def.pcf' and 'ghi.pcf'. On this occasion, you want to use the print output as defined by 'def.pcf', so you select it from the drop list and click 'OK'. The current.pcf now contains all the settings of the 'def.pcf'. The current.pcf adopts the settings of the print configuration file last selected - that is, the currently selected file. It will remain as this until something else is selected.
