  • The print buttons at the upper left of the document preview window initiate either single document or document group printing and/or export as a .pdf file.
  • Print - prints only the document currently being viewed. Option-click to bypass the OSX print job panel and print directly to a .pdf file in the current patient folder using the PS default print job naming conventions. By default, PS will name the print job (or .pdf file) using the patient name initials. For example the print job name for a patient named 'Onymous, Anne' will be 'OA' or 'OA.pdf'.
  • Print Group - prints the group of documents indicated by the Document group checkboxes below. The document group members can be preset in the Preferences dialog. Option-click to bypass the OSX print job panel and automatically print directly to a .pdf file in the current patient folder using the PS default print job naming convention. You can also automate the task of subdividing a treatment plan into multiple smaller parts for meeting email attachment requirements via settings in the Institution window.
