Question: Is there a way to export the report file either to a flash drive or an email. I'm trying to figure out how to print it on a printer not hooked up to the laptop at the non-profit where we have this software. Is that possible? If so, how?

Answer: You can print a report to PDF file format. Then transfer the file to a computer with a printer.

Question: I would like to create a PDF of my library inventory from a report but I cannot figure out how to do that. I have tried using PDF writers but they do not work. I also am not able to locate the report as a saved file. Where do saved reports go?

Question: I have another question. The laptop that the software is on is having trouble printing and I have to print out the barcode labels. Is there a way I can save it on my windows and email it to myself so that I can print from desktop?



Question: My church upgraded their computer system and left the library program on the old one. I have no print capabilities now. Is it fairly easy for me to move the purchased program to my home computer? Or, is there a way to move the library list of books onto a thumb drive to print spine labels at home?

Answer: There are several ways to print spine labels at home. You can print labels to a pdf file on the church computer, transfer the file to your home computer, and then print labels from the pdf file. You can also install the software on your home computer, transfer data using backup/restore library features to your personal computer, and then print labels at home.


Question: I've been using your small library pro on the trial version for a few weeks and the only problem I'm having is that I don't have a very efficient way to print off the labels on my own printer. I have found no good way to export those barcodes except by tricking the program into thinking that I want to send them by fax. Even then it is in a strange file format which doesn't print out the barcodes in the right size. Is there any way to export a PDF with barcodes to print at a different location? WIthout using barcode scanner this program will not be any better than the one I already have because it won't save me any time with check-in and check-out transactions.

Answer: You can save reports or labels as a PDF document. In the print report/labels window, click Select Printer and choose the PDF Writer. Then enter the name and save the file on the hard drive. Before you print labels from the PDF viewer, in the page settings, review the page margins.
