Complaint: This is a worthless piece of software. I completely removed it from my system and refuse to use it any more because it won't allow me to print reports. I can see them but I cannot print them. What good is that? I wish I had never purchased this lousy software! My gut feelings told me not to. I should have listened to my gut!
Answer: Of course you can print the reports. There is a little printer icon in the upper left corner. Just click it to print the report! There is also a save icon that can be used to save the report in many formats including PDF! Give it a try! [Hint: I'm working for a perfect application but I am not there yet! Please contact me if you are having problems - preferably before you get so frustrated that you start to bad mouth NM Collector Software! Believe me, I want to help you AND improve my product.]
