I like this program. However I can only print on a full sized (8 1/2 X 11) sheet of paper. This is nice since I can put it in a 3 ring binder and it shows me all of the notes that I have made for this round. When I am working up a new load, or just trying something new, I normally only make between 10 - 30 rounds for testing. I would really like to be able to print on a large label, like Avery, so I can put it on my load box. I am fairly sure that I am just missing how to do this with the current build of the program. If I am not, is there a way that you can add a customizable printing option? It would be nice to choose what information I can print out. Thanks for the great program.

There isn't a way in PointBlank that I know of to change printer settings. A workaround is to go into your computers Control Panel and into the Printers and Faxes, make sure the printer you want to use is set as the Default Printer, right click on that printer and select Printing Preferences and set the paper size and other preferences (color, quality...). Then when you print from PB, it'll use those settings.

If you have Excel you can also use PB's Export Data function on the bottom right of the Table Data screen. This is very useful you can manipulate the data in Excel (calculate MOA or come-up clicks, ditch a column if you don't care to have that on your range card...).

Most newer printers come with their own software that can enable the printer to do just about anything and also cause confusion with users. If you have a generic printer, your stuck with windows settings as every single printer with software today uses propriety language to communicate with the printer to do special functions.

You can however do what I did for friends that have a generic printer and either edit or write on the attached file for your ammo.

Thanks for the quick responses.
mtnlvr unfortunately using the export data is after I have gone to the range, fired and received the information on the Chrony.
Ominivision1 it is looking like I will have to use your idea and print the information I am looking for either from word or excel.

When I print on the 8.5" x 11" I have noticed that some data is printed differently between loads. Specifically, when printed there is a space for Caliber. In some print outs, it show the correct caliber, in other print outs it shows the bullet diameter. The space is labeled Caliber, but prints bullet diameter. And there is no print out of the bullet diameter. They seem to have merged. Not sure why. Anybody got an idea?

I do not normally use Case COL as much as I use the Comparator listing. I would like to be able to print it as well

Dallan Help ! !

Also, when I print loading labels, I have always use a Smart Label Printer.
They have tons of different size labels and colors. It is easy to swap out the different sizes for different needs. We started using this SLP years ago when mass mailing Christmas Cards. I have a separate folder for each occasion and one is Reloading Labels.
For me it is fast a efficient.

Thanks for any suggestions as to my printing questions.
