Improving Browser based Print (Receipts or other)

  • In chrome/firefox before printing, it shows a preview dialogue. The preview dialogue left side has some setting.
    • Enable Background style
    • Try setting the margin as default.
    • Set correct page size (mostly A4)
    • Enable/Disable header & footer to show/hide the page URL.

Website to Desktop apps in One-Click

  • You can use this online tool to convert website to Desktop App – Website-to-Desktop

Browser Full-Screen mode or distraction-free mode

    • Whenever you’re in “Full Screen” mode and use a browser-based printing option it gets exit from Full Screen. This also happens if you navigate to another page in full screen.
    • But if you have enabled “Full Screen” by pressing “F11” it will not get exit during navigation and also during browser-based printing.
    • Using UltimatePOS POS sales screen in “Full screen” by pressing “F11” gives an ultimate experience.

Barcode Scanner Trick

  • Many barcode scanners send an “End of Line” or “CR/LF” ( the ‘Carriage Return’ and the ‘Line Feed’) characters after each scan. This will result in some issue with UltimatePOS. Well, it’s not an issue with Ultimate POS or the scanner. This feature is useful in some cases. But you should disable it while using UltimatePOS.
  • Some noted behaviors are, in POS screen invoice gets automatically submitted after scanning, automatically page gets redirected after scanning.
  • To disable it simply follow the instruction provided by your manufacturer. ALL branded manufacturer have instruction available to “Disable Carriage return & Line Feed”. Google it.
  • For example: In this link, you will find simple instructions for Honeywell scanners (“RESOLUTION” present at bottom of page) (https://honeywellaidc.force.com/supportppr/s/article/How-to-remove-the-Enter-after-each-scan)
