KNOWN ISSUES:

Symptom: Formatting problems sometimes occur when printing forms from the Table of Contents. For instance, all of the grid lines will print in the upper left hand corner.

Probable Cause: Printer drivers. Unfortunately we have not found one printer driver that works for all components of the SACS software.

Resolution/Workaround: Various printer drivers work differently with the SACS software. Try changing the printer driver or print from the open form rather than from the table of contents.

Symptom: GPF error or system runs very slowly.

Probable Cause: The computer runs out of physical/virtual memory.

Workaround: Avoid opening too many windows concurrently. If the error is received, shut down the application and reboot the machine.

Problem: Known Printing Issues Relating to Windows 7/8/10

After the SACS software was modified to mitigate the worst of its incompatibilities with Windows 7, many software testers encountered a remaining printing problem where a fund form, supplemental form, or report is sent to the printer, and the SACS software print status window freezes. (This is not an issue when printing the Technical Review Check list (TRC), the import log, or from the User Data Input/Review screen.)

Workaround: Anticipating this problem for all Windows 7/8/10 users, CDE’s workaround is to print first to Microsoft XPS Document Writer or Adobe PDF, then send the document to the printer.

Possible Fix: After extensive testing within CDE’s test environment, we are able to send forms and reports directly to printers by using the following print drivers (which are specific to our model printers), and by changing a particular printer setting specifically for HP printers. CDE does not advocate the purchase or use of any specific printer brand or model and provides this information only as a basis for LEAs to test with different print drivers and/or settings if desired.

  • For Samsung printers: Samsung Universal Print Driver 2 PS
  • For HP printers: HP Universal Printing PS or HP Universal Printing printer command language (PCL) 6 print drivers
  • Additional printer settings required for some HP printers:
    • Notes:
      • For some users, these printer settings must be changed outside of the SACS Software (e.g., changed through the Control Panel) or else the printer settings are lost each time the SACS Software is closed.
      • Some users need to reset these printer settings each time they install the SACS software.
      • Some users need to intermittently change these printer settings within the SACS software (i.e., changed through the print prompt) as well.
    • Specific steps CDE uses for HP printer settings:
      • Open SACS software form
      • File menu, Print… option
      • Properties [button]
      • Effects [tab]
      • Click on the radial button “Print Document on:”
      • Then it should default to "Letter" right underneath it.
      • It should also add a checkmark next to "Scale to Fit"
      • Click Apply
      • Then OK to print
