Printing out in Anzio

First off let me explain what Anzio is as I know a lot of you call it by different names.  The ILS system that we use is called Dynix and in order to use it you need a program that allows you to get into it.  This program is called AnzioWin or just Anzio for short.  Anzio is the connection between your PC and the Dynix server.  Anzio like most other Windows software packages has a menu bar across the top that gives you a lot of features.  The ones I would like to discuss today is the print options that allow you to print to a wide variety of printers.

Before I get into printer settings within Anzio I want to talk about your PC's default printer.  The default printer for your PC should be set to the printer that you print to most and is set within Windows.  You can check to see what your default printer is by doing the following:

1. Click on the Start button in the lower left corner of your screen
2. Click on Settings
3. Click on Printers and Faxes
4. Look for the printer that has a black circle with a white check mark in it by it  Default_Printer

This is the printer that is set as your default printer.  If you want to change your default printer you can find the instructions to change it here.

Now on to printing within Anzio.  Your PC's default printer is the printer that Anzio is going to print to by default; big surprise.  Anzio allows you to print to a receipt printer, spine label printer or a regular printer, like a LaserJet or DeskJet printer.  The unfortunate part of this is that you need to change some Anzio settings when printing back and forth between the first two printers and the regular printer.  The way to change the Anzio settings for any of these printers is as follows:

  1. In the Anzio window click the File menu item


  2. Select Printer Setup


  3. Choose the printer you want to print to
    1. For a receipt printer or a spine label printer you would choose Generic / Text Only
    2. For a regular printer choose the printer by its name
  4. Click Print button (doesn't actually print anything; really just like an OK button)
  5. In the Anzio window click the File menu item
  6. Make sure Print Wizard is off


    1. If it's on it will have a check mark in front of it
    2. Clicking it will toggle it between on and off

  7. In the Anzio window click the File menu item
  8. Select Print Level


    Note: If all of these are grayed out then you still have Print Wizard on
    1. For a receipt printer or a spine label printer choose Raw
    2. For a regular printer choose High
  9. You are now ready to print

That's it, easy right?  Well, if you do have some problems with these steps you can feel free to call the Help Desk and we'll be glad to assist you.
