Solomon.ini setting to prompt for printer

    ​I remember years ago there was a setting in the Solomon.ini printer section you could enter so when you went print a report it would prompt you for the printer.  Does anyone recall what this was?

    thanks

    Steve - here are the links to the secret, undocumented SOLOMON.INI settings - I do not recall one that does what you described:

    If any of these help, you owe me a beer!

    I used to do this years ago too and *believe* it was done by replacing the "Device Name" and/or "Port" with a ?

    I tried it just now on our SL 2015 installation and it didn't work, but it may be a trick that no longer works.

    Joe,
    I think you are correct about the Device Name=?.  It's been a while.
    I tested in SL2018 and did not work either.

    Thanks anyway.
