Re: Stand alone visualisation software

You may not be able to find what you are looking for, Sarah.
In order to protect their assets, developers of web apps such as those for online frame visualisation, restrict the business user's access to the front end.

Re: Estlite Trial Version - Mouldings

The "trial" refers to the period of unregistered use and has nothing to do with the way the program functions.
In other words, during your trial period you have unrestricted use of the application.

There must have been a glitch in the matrix, John.

Re: Merging Duplicate Customers?

If all the results seem valid, I keep the customer record with the most detail and merge all of the jobs into that. For example, I'd keep the record with a full name, address, and email, and merge the jobs belonging to customers with just a phone number into that. OMG, you may have started something...

Re: Estlite Query

Yes Jay. Just uninstall the program and re-install. However, if you also wish to retain your Customer and Job data, then we would be in uncharted waters as this has never been requested before and I've never had the need to do it myself. But I think it should be easy enough, and if you don't mind be...

Many users make few changes if any to the out-of-the-box settings. However, I recommend that you should examine the prices that Es...

Re: What did you get (or give)?

A Raspberry Pi computer, which I have earmarked for a couple of tasks.
1. Act as a filter for some some of the more annoying and non-relevant ads.
2. Amalgamate shop and home networks into a super-network. I've never really been satisfied with previous attempts at this.

Sorry, you did ask!

Also, you can print the list (on either pap...
