I just purchased TB Silver.

I am unable to print the program file or the output. I get an error message print failed.

Is there somewhere I am supposed to set up the printer? Page setup seems to work ok.


Re: Printing

Richard ... With TB Silver opened, click on the File menu, then click on Page Setup. You should see the name of your printer. Then adjust the Properties if necessary. You should then be able to Print any text in the Output Window.

Another way to print program text Output is via the Command line at the bottom of the screen, where you can RUN a TB program with the command:

run gtgt filename.ext

where gt is the upper case 'period' keypress and filename could be ' output.dat '. The output.dat text file can then be printed using any text editor, like MS Notepad or Wordpad.

Interestingly, if you RUN a TB program repeatedly AND use the same output filename (output.dat), over & over, the data from each succesive RUN will be APPENDED to the file output.dat. This useful feature cannot be found in any TB programming manual. Regards ... Tom M


Look through the other forum--go deep through the pages. There are a number of printing threads, including one work-around. Seems this can be a printer/OS specific problem.
