Winners Receipts
« on: December 09, 2013, 11:00:30 PM »
Hi all,
I've used the Tournament Director for years for my home games and always been able to do everything I need to with the software. Now I find myself in charge of a card room in a casino. I've managed to talk management away from the piss poor Card Room Magic and convinced them to take TD on- but I can't for the life of me figure out how to print winners receipts for players to take to the cash desk to redeem prizes (never a problem at home!) I've set up buy in/ rebuy receipts to work with the epson receipt printer attached to the system but any clues on winners receipts?
Thanks in advance (I hope!) ???

Not (yet) a feature available, requested as a future feature.

At the moment I use excel to print my receipts.

That's a bugger.....if you don't mind me asking how do you achieve that with excel? I want to set up something that's fairly straightforward for others to administer when I can finally get some time off!
Do you use the export function on the prizes screen or input them manually? Any suggestions greatly appreciated!
Cheers,

Hi Paul,

No at the moment I have a three part prizewinners receipt, part 1 Players Copy, Part 2 Cardroom Copy, part 3 Cage Copy - ie a similar setup to CardroomMAGIC receipts, just not automatically printable from the software. I then type the name, details and amount into part 1 which is then mirrored in part 2 & 3, then printed off the receipt printer.  I can email you across my excel docx if you want, just PM me your addy.

Public 'THANKS!!' for the layouts; used them for the first time 'live' in a tournament on Sunday and the whole system got nothing but compliments. I've tweaked a few of the cells to suit my set up but otherwise it was perfect!
Now if I can just figure a way to stop the printer dialogue popping up on the main display......

Yeah, that one is a pain.  I'm not sure anyone's figured out a way to do that.  Display Fusion might be able to solve this, but I'm not certain: http://www.displayfusion.com/

You are using the "Auto Print" preference, though, right?  At least with that, it only pops up for a split second.

Glad they are working out for you Paul, as Corey says, the auto-print function takes care of the printer dialogue nicely.

Yup using auto print; just I have it on a VERY large screen and the flashing when rebuys are purchased is very disconcerting. Surely there must be some way of getting the print screen to show on the main rather than the extended display???It bugs me!

ahh, its on your extended display, right this used to happen with me too.  I can't remember what worked for me, but I tried the following things:

Disconnect the extended display and run a few print commands, select "Centred on Main Display" on open dialogues in Preferences > Display Management, and finally one other thing I tried was to switch autoprint off then drag the print dialogue back to the main display before selecting print.  I'm sure one of them (or a combination of all) sorted it out for me.

EDIT: once you have it opening on the main display it should stay there - it has for me for years now.

Thanks for that Stu- although my trial and error doesn't seem to have achieved any change (yet!). I'll keep trying!
