Color and two-sided printing
I use a color printer but when I go to font properties in the print screen I have no color. Am I missing something? Also, I print on both sides of the paper and find it difficult to print only even or odd pages.
In the meantime, sequences can be written to a text file that can be imported into your favorite word processor, and from there, you can set the print properties as you'd like.
To export sequences into a text file:
Date does not appear
I am using version 1.11.00 of CSDS. When printing a sequence, the date written does not appear only a blank box in the upper left-hand corner. I have tried several different fonts types and sizes. This changes the "YES" under "Proofread" and changes the size of the box, but nothing prints in the box. Can you help me?
The 'Date, proof status' button within the 'Fonts' frame controls the font name and font size for the date field. Click on that button to bring up the 'Font' selection dialog box. Be sure that a font is actually selected in the left-hand side of the dialog box. Most likely, this field is currently blank, since CSDS defaults to trying to use the 'Roman' font which unfortunately is not found on all Windows systems (this is dumb, of course, and I should change it someday). In any case, click on an existing font name to select it. Then select a desired size, and click the 'OK' button. Make sure that the data under the 'Date, proof status' button now reflects the selected font name.
Hopefully this should fix the problem.
Another possibility is that the sequences you are trying to print are 'old' (written using a much older version of CSDS), and the date format in the database may no longer be valid. Try writing a new sequence and printing it and see if the date is printed.
Formation pictures not displayed
I just upgraded my computer from Windows ME to Windows XP pro I have reinstalled CSDS 1.14.04 When I print the sequences - I get (#formation#) - I do not get the 'picture' of the formation that I used to get - What am I doing wrong?
Formation pictures within a sequence are not actually stored in the sequence itself, rather the pictures are stored in a separate file. When you changed computers, you may not have copied this file. To restore the pictures, see http://www.ceder.net/faqdb/view.php?section=1&category=34#rec385

How do I print a sequence?
How do I print a sequence?
Would it be possible for you to incorporate or make for me a program that prints out all the songs in my music database with only Name of Song, Producer and Number? I don't want all the stuff in the database like it prints out now.
Where does the 40 point title text come from when printing sequences? One of my sequence databases printed out a big "PLUS" centered at the top of every sequence, another database printed nothing in this space?
The 'Primary Header' can be set via a somewhat convoluted process:
The primary header is limited to 6 characters, and the secondary header is limited to 20 characters.
Print PDF of all sequences in a given dance?
Is there a way that I can print a PDF of all sequences in a given dance?
Printing all sequences in a specific database
I have been writing sequences, and they are saved as *.seq files. Is there anyway to bring them up as a Word file for editing? How about a way to print all the sequences in a particular file? If there are 10 sequences in a file, I only know how to print each sequence one at a time.
If you wish to edit the sequences in Microsoft Word, then do all of the above steps except, for step #3, select 'One text file'. In this case, all of the sequences will be written to a text file.
Note: Formation pictures are not printed via this section.
Resetting print list
I tried to print 44 sequences from 6 databases in the print list. I got a virtual call error and had to reboot. When I went back to print the sequences, they were not in print list. I could not find an easy way to get them back into the print list. I went to each sequence and edited it so I could check the 'in print list' box. This seemed awkward. Is there a better way to reset the print list ?
From the main menu, select 'Sequence' followed by 'Print sequence(s)'.
Click within the 'Print list' field (the large white box at the top of the
screen) to edit this region.
For example, to print sequences 10 to 15 from database C3ASEQ and sequences 1, 4, and 10 and beyond from database A2SEQ, enter the following in the print list field:
Sequences with embedded graphics
Can you add to the Wish List: Printing Sequences with graphics (instead of seeing #???# tags)? When printing out sequences that display with embedded "Insert Formation" graphics, the graphics don't actually print. It would be really helpful to be able to print what I can view on the screen. Using screen-capture to get the embedded "current formation" images is pretty tedious.
