General settings


The title is the text which appears at the top of the printed page. By default, it is the same as the document title.


Font used when printing.

Font size

You can set the font size in which you want the text to be printed.  However, when a line doesn’t fit the page width, its font size is automatically reduced in order to fit.


The “Linefeed” function will leave a blank line every five lines.

Printing the ledger

There are different options available when printing the ledger:

Printing the entire ledger

By default, all entries will be printed.

By date

A group of defined entries will be printed.

Only marked entries

Only marked entries will be printed.

By account name

The account name will be printed for each account instead of its number.

Printing account statements

You can print account statements in prefix order, either in a series, or separately.


You can select the group of accounts you want to print. By default, 0-9999 in standard mode and 0 to zzzzzzzzz in alphanumeric mode.


Account entries can be printed for a specific group of dates.

One account per page

This function forces page break after every account. However, when disabled, accounts will print one after the other if they fit on the same page. If an account fits entirely on a single page it will be printed on a separate sheet and if its size exceeds a page, it will start right after the preceding account and continue on a new page.

Account names

The account name will be printed for each account instead of its number.

Balance for each entry

The balance for each entry is printed in a supplementary extra column. 

Printing the chart of accounts

The chart of accounts can only be printed in its entirety.

Printing the currency chart

The currency chart can only be printed in its entirety.

Printing the trial balance

The trial balance can only be printed in its entirety.
