Enhancement Summary

Within certain screens, the user can select multiple items (Ex. Todo events) and is given further options to edit, delete, etc… When the Print icon/menu button is selected, the Selection button is disabled. Naturally, the user may want only the selected items to be printed.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Open the To Do List tab, either through the Actions menu item, or the toolbar icon.
  2. At the bottom, under the heading Quick Todo, enter in a title and select a date and press Add. Repeat this 3 more times. (Fig.1)
  3. Select all but the last Todo events, and open the Print screen, either through the Actions menu item, or the toolbar icon. (Fig.2)
  4. At this point, the Selection button under the Print range header is disabled. The user may assume that the default settings would allow only the selected items to be printed, however this is not the case. (Fig.3)

Suggested Fix

Allow the user to select multiple items (when the option is available) and press the Selection button under the Print screen. An alternate option is to allow the default settings of Print to recognize that multiple items have been selected, and proceed by printing only those.

Notes

This procedure applies to all screens that allow users to select multiple items. In particular, the Search screen was tested as well, and produced the same results. In conclusion, adding this functionality will provide the user with additional features. This is not a defect, but more of an enhancement.
