Printing in SplashID Desktop 8.x apps
Please add printing options to 8.0.x Mac/PC Desktop apps - print one record, all records, records in view.
Thanks in advance!
Thank you for helping to make the latest revision to SplashID happen! The improvements added will now allow me to start using this version, without reducing my productivity. There are still some changes to make it as efficient as Ver 7 was (such as being able to show all fields of a record at once), but I understand these take time to implement. At least I can now see the same number of records as Ver 7 in only a little more desktop space, and can unmask all records at once.
I also especially like the ability to vary the widths of the columns!!! So much improved for my use.
The emails I received from the forum about the new release (re printing and the GUI) asked for feedback so I am attaching some pictures that have notations on them and will list the comments below. I am also replying to the forum/uservoice entry, so it goes back properly. Hope I can add pictures there.
Regarding printing, I can now print one record, several, or all by properly selecting records. It does the job but is not elegant yet. When print is chosen, it is not clear what is going to be printed. I had to run several tests to make sure I understood the process necessary to choose what I wanted. For example if I press Control P I don’t know if one record or all will be printed. If I go to “select” and choose a number of records, I know which are going to print. That is fine.
Also, there is no way to format the printed output. Of course there never was. If I want to format I can export as CSV, import into Excel and select the columns and wrap format I want. Unfortunately since this a database with varying width fields and field contents, even in Excel there is no one format to properly print all the records in the least space. But that is not a SplashID problem. So I can see why just being able to print at all from the program is probably as far as is practical to develop.

We have brought back the print records feature in the SplashID Windows app. Please update your SplashID Windows app to the latest release 220.127.116.113 to use the print records feature.
You can access the print records functionality from the main application menu or by using the Ctrl+P hotkey. If you need the passwords to be shown in readable text, then unmask it globally using the Ctrl+H hotkey or use the 'Show All Passwords' option on the main application menu. You can also select ALL or few of your records to print. Do leave feedback for us on this feature.
SplashID Windows 18.104.22.1683 can be downloaded from on https://www.splashid.com/downloads or use the 'Check for update' option in the application main menu to initiate the update.

As an IT Consultant specializing in Desktop Support, I have always recommended SplashID to my clients. I will no longer do so until the Print function is restored.
