Printing Overview

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 with the Report Generator

You can print QSOs with the Report Generator from every Window where QSOs are displayed.

Each of these actions opens the Print / View Reports window.
