Some of the screens, themes and periods and tax percentages, for Point-of-Sales, is not in line with the rest of the documentation. 

The printer setup allows you to select and set up to two printers on your system. This setup only needs to be set once, unless you need to change the printers on your system. Before you can actually set and test the printers, the printer drivers and configuration must be properly set up in your Windows™ operating system. You may have to access this screen later, if you wish to select another available printer on your system.

Should you experience any problems with the printer configuration on your system or network, please consult your printer's, operating system's manuals and / or network administrator.
