Print job summary

Postby Stephen50 » Mon Jan 15, 2018 9:13 pm

I'm missing the basics somewhere following are the steps I used.
- Highlighted tool path list
- Clicked on create job sheet listed on pull down menu beneath Toolpaths
- Name of file created automatically (file name_Summary)
- Verified information clicked Save

Now I'm in a situation where I'm unable to locate the summary
- If I click on open file the original file appears no summary appears
Any suggestions its' probable operator error and I'm the operator

See the "Create Job Sheet" section of the help file (Help > Help Contents).

Also, from that section:

Note: If you wish to automatically open the Job Sheet after creation, simply hold down the CTRL key
on the keyboard as you select the Create Job Sheet option from the menu.

When saving any file the folder location it is saved to is displayed at the top of the dialog and the name of the file is displayed at the bottom.

Hello Stephen50,
When creating 'job sheet' it is not necessary to highlight the tool list, however it doesn't hurt anything. The Summary file will be created in your active work directory, unless you change the directory path.

If for some reason at a later date you can't find the file simply open the work file and click the 'create job sheet' button. It is not necessary to actually save the file again, however it will display the file location. This will only work if you did not change the default direcory path. Remember this is a HTML file and you will need to use your "Windows Explorer" to actually see and launch it. Once opened it will print in a normal fashion.

I initially went to the help section looked for a response to my question however, I probable read over the section which had the response I was looking for. Thankfully, the pros on the forum came to my rescue and provided me with the answer(s) necessary to resolve my inquiry.
