Since switching to the Wintotal (Alamode) pdf writer it seems the "print to pdf" function is much slower than before with Adobe pdf writer. Then couple that with the new e-mail delivery system it seems there seems to be more "stare at the screen" time than before. It must be a memory eater too, because trying to do other functions sure brings up the hourglass I never saw before.

AND, I still can't open the new .pdf to view it prior to sending it. I can only open it after it's in the WinTotal pdf file.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men/women do nothing.

My problem has been customers sending me email, or calling me, saying that they can't open the SureReceipt files because their bank does not use Internet Explorer or MS Outlook.
I tried sending a report to myself, and got a bunch of garbage that looked like ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics (spl?). I use Netscape as a browser, and email program. Less virus problems. I also got an email saying that I received the report and another saying I opened it. Well, I received it, and when I opened it, I couldn't read it.

I called alamode about it, they said they are working on it. I have sent half a dozen reports out, and it seems to be far.

The thing I miss, in the EDI center, is the folders that keep your emails....sent, drafts, outbasket, etc. Alamode said that they were looking into that also. I now paste my SureReceipts to a folder that I made for that purpose. Then I have to search through that folder to see if folks actually got their reports.

Maybe they will get the bugs out soon.
