New Receipt Options
There are a number of new options relating to the receipt in ThunderPOS, allowing you a greater degree of control than ever before on how your receipts look.
In version 5.0.12, we've added the ability to use a 2-inch receipt printer, rather than the typical 3 inch. While many stores will prefer to stick to the traditional three inch width, those pressed for space or just wanting a smaller receipt can use a 2-inch model.
For USB printers, you can now select the font size and style. Most distinctly, you can now have the program exert direct control over the printer in the same way a serial printer would, including direct control of logo printing, cutting, and the cash drawer. This will use the printer's built in font, but will lose some of the features that USB printers get, such as couponing.
The notes you can set on an individual transaction have been greatly expanded. These have gone from 5 lines of up to 40 characters each to 500 characters, and you can set your own line breaks within them wherever you need. These can be set under the register functions button, or by hitting control+t at the register.
Discounting and promotion information is now broken out separately on the receipt, and is entirely optional to print, as is the customer's account balance. These options are all available under the receipt section of settings.
