For someone that generates 150 or more invoices a day this is NOT an improvement the old system worked fine we should have the option to turn on or off PDF. And as for the clipboard a 4 key stroke has now become 6 key stroke and mouse this is also something I use alot of for the first time in 10 or 12 years i will have to change from Reckon because my work hours will become so huge that wages will double

Maybe Reckon can integrate their Hosted platform with the Google Cloud Print service.

This can likely satisfy the users who insist on printing directly to their own local printer instead of to PDF.

https://www.google.com/cloudprint/learn/

They even provide resources for developers to help them integrate with the service.

Hi DebraM and all,

When the pdf generates in the browser, hit Ctrl P and you can print straight to your local printer

We run Macs in our environment. Citrix printing was perfect - worked on all printers without any problems and was IMMEDIATE.  Now we have to go via PDFs.  I think this is definitely a backward step - we are generating many invoices each day in 2 different cities and now every invoice we print has to go via PDF - It's crazy. Really you guys are covering up what was a Windows deficiency by going to PDFs but taking everyone backwards in terms of our daily work effort :(

do you realise it is also saving to your mac just discoverd 800 pdfs from invoices on my mac that have to delete how ridiculous.... i agree when making improvements adding four more clicks is definitely no improvement very unhappy with how much longer my day takes just getting invoices out of the printer.
