With SWISSLOG you can print in different ways.
This is the method you will use most of the time. It allows you to print you logbook, QSL cards and labels, award applications and much more.
This function allows you to print the current Logbook View exactly in the layout as it is displayed. You will use this function mostly if you have used the grouping and summing functions of the Logbook View.
Print a Statistic
This function prints the current statistic. Select Print or Print Totals from the Functions- or pop-up menu
You can print QSOs with the Report Generator from every Window where QSOs are displayed.
Open the pop-up menu (right mouse button) and select
Print selected QSOs or press Ctrl_Q
Print all QSOs or press Ctrl_P
You can also select View ¦ Reports from the main menu or press Ctrl_R to open the Report Generator Window without pre-selection of QSOs
Each of these actions opens the Print / View Reports window.
Click on any of the components in the dialog window to get more information
This dialog allows you to do many things:
Select the source of the QSOs
Preview the QSOs selected for printing
Preview or Print Reports
Create New Reports
These are the buttons to activate the functions
View Report: displays the report as it would be printed on the preview page and the QSOs which are selected for the report on the record page

Here you can select the source of the QSOs that will be printed. The active data source is displayed at the top under Active Data Source. You can select from the following sources:
QSOs selected in the window from which the print function was called.
- If you called the function Print all QSOs then these are all QSOs displayed in the window
- If you called the function Print selected QSOs this are all QSOs selected in the window
All QSOs: all the QSOs in your database
All the QSO-Groups you have defined
Note: the Report you use to display the QSOs may contain query definitions
which filter out some QSOs. So if you don't see what you expect check the
query definitions of the report.
Here you select the report you want to print. It is an explorer-like list. By default it shows you the ..\Reports directory of SWISSLOG with all the sub directories which contain the reports. This allows you to organize your reports in a directory structure so that you can easily find them. The active report is displayed at the top under Active Report.
To select a report navigate through the directory structure and select it.
The Drive menu allows you to navigate through your entire drives to select a report. The first entry in this box ..\Reports is a quick way back to your standard reports directory.
The button refreshes the directory tree. If you created new reports you have to press this button to see the new report.
Active Report displays the full name of the report File (*.RPT) that is currently selected.
The Active Data Source line displays the current data source for the QSOs
The preview page contains the print preview area
In the records page you can see the QSOs which are selected for printing. Press the View Report button to refresh the QSOs.
