Tap Forms – Organizer Database App for Mac, iPhone, and iPad › Forums › Using Tap Forms › Printing multiple records?
December 15, 2012 at 3:13 AM #5678
I am sure I missed something so please bear with me.
I would like to print a catalog of 100 database records, 1 page each but I simply can’t figure out how to do this in one shot (not printing individual records).
Any help would be much appreciated!
Thanks for a great product!December 15, 2012 at 3:21 AM #5682
Unfortunately at the moment Tap Forms does not support that. Printing is on individual records only. Or you could print a list of records in a list view if you export the records, then view the records in the Exports folder by tapping on the file. You’ll get a spreadsheet like view with an action button at the top-right. One of the options there is Print.
But adding multiple record details printing is on my rather long to-do list.

Hi Brendan and thanks for the (as always) super fast reply! I guess that would be a great new feature when you find the time!
I’ll try the Export print then.
PS. I did mean the Mac version not the iPad – Same thing?December 16, 2012 at 12:20 AM #5690
It doesn’t really matter if it’s the iPad or Mac version I think. But when I get the time I’ll look into it.

I am also trying to print multiple records at one time instead of having to print each one at a time. Also, being able to print more than one record on a page would be nice. Or even a reporting feature that can pull data from records to print.
Have you had any time to look into this? I thank you for your support and hope to hear any updates soon.February 8, 2013 at 5:10 PM #5935
I’ve actually just been working on multiple-record printing support in Tap Forms Mac. It will be available in my next update. Not for iOS though.

I have the same doubt that originated this threat and since the last answer is from almost a year ago, is it already possible to print one records per sheet?

You can do this already using the Mac version, but not the iOS version.
See attached screenshot. You can see in the screenshot that it shows printing 4 records. One record per page.

Thank you. I don’t why but while trying to print with that option selected it keeps printing everything continued and also put “2 pages per sheet” as default and that doesn’t happen in any other app when printing. I can’t understand what’s wrong. :-/January 1, 2014 at 8:55 PM #8579
I’m nto sure what you mean by “it keeps printing everything continued”? That’s the idea of printing all your records is that it continues printing each record in your form.
If a record spans more than one page, it would print on multiple pages per record. But in version 2.0 there is a glitch which causes an extra blank page to be added when printing a single record. The trick is to turn off and on the printing of the form name title. Then it should show 1 of 1 if there’s only 1 page to print instead of 1 of 2.
