How do I add a new print format?


The print format enables you, among other things, to set paper size and page layout, e.g., portrait or landscape, for the documents intended for printing.


  1. Open “Print Fromat” from the menu.
  2. Create a new print format.
  3. Give the print format a Name.
  4. Select a Table to which the print format shall apply, e.g., Letter.
  5. Select a Print Paper, e.g., A4 Portrait.
  6. Open the advanced edit menu from the actions menu.

    Note: Use shortcut Alt + E / ⌥ alt + E.

  7. Scroll down to the field Jasper Process and select an appropriate process, e.g., Serial Letter.

    Note: Jasper creates the layouts for the documents according to the settings.

  8. Click “Done” to apply the changes and close the advanced edit menu.
  9. metasfresh saves the progress automatically.

For the configurations to take effect on the application server, it first has to be restarted by the admin.
