What are the Form Settings for the Tally Printer?
The newer Tally printers have different printer settings and instructions. This answer has been modified to provide the courts with the newest settings and instructions.
The process of loading and aligning the paper into the printers changed with the newest models (Tally T2280+ and T2380). You no longer need to align the forms or paper being loaded using the hash marks on the printer. You no longer need to move the left tractor each time a new one is loaded. Instead, align the forms or paper being loaded to the X located on the printer housing. An instructional document is attached at the bottom of this answer. All other left margin settings are set using the Forms Settings command LftMrg.
The new "Form Settings for Tally T2280+ and T2380 printers" are listed in the three tables within this answer. The tables include the following information:
- Special Forms Settings - printer settings for all of the courts' forms.
- Set Form Length instructions.
- Change Menu number instructions.
Attached at the bottom of this answer is an Excel® spreadsheet containing the printer settings and instructions as listed in this answer.
