Hey @gohanman, does the version 2.3 branch include the customer screen changes?

Cool cool, I'll play with it. Would you accept patches to add 58mm paper support btw?
Andy Theuninck
@gohanman
Sep 15 2016 00:37
Yeah. I'm not sure how complicated that'll be though

I've got no clue, but I can take a look and bumble around trying to add support.

I fiddled around a little with making line width a variable CORE-POS/IS4C@8d8a9aa, although depending how many characters need to be trimmed it might need a custom formatter that purposely splits info for each "logical" line onto two separate ones on paper

So on 80mm paper we get 50 chars of width?

56 is the default, at least with whatever the normal font size is on TM-H6000s

ah, I misread protected $line_width = 56;
We get 32 characters to work with it seems

That'll need a more dramatic solution then. Item descriptions are allowed to be up to 30 characters; doesn't leave much room to put everything on one line
danry25
@danry25
Sep 15 2016 01:11
Yeah
Considering the average item can use up to 11 characters after the description, we get 21 characters for the description total
aka 3 @ $11.99

Why don't we just drop the last 9 characters when 58mm printers are in use and provide a warning in Fannie for 58mm printer users only?

Kind of falls apart by weight. "0.50 @ 9.99 4.98" is 17. At least three columns on the right for status flags (tax, foodstamp, void, refund, etc) is 20. That leaves 11 characters for a description. IMO it'll be better as: description, line break, tab, pricing details, line break

Mmm, yeah. Didn't consider that
We aren't planning to use 58mm printers in grocery fyi
Its for weighed applications
Err
Its for light retail use, IE $30k a month

Gotcha

Probably no weighted items, we aren't putting a scale/scanner in, just a scangun attached via USB emulating a keyboard

configurable line width & a formatting option to split items across two lines (CORE-POS/IS4C@bc4b424)
