I used to be able to select a dozen invoices, print them to SnagIt, and get one file with 12 pages. Now I get 12 files of 1 page that have to be saved individually. Vote for this!

This was also frustrating us. Fortunately we found a relatively easy workaround until MYOB fixes it.

 

Most companies have a need to review monthly invoices before sending out to customers and this is usually done by someone who is not sitting in front of MYOB. We used to be able to print all invoices as a single pdf for easy emailing or printing, but this is no longer possible in AccountRight.

 

Here's the workaround (for PC) using free software called PDF Creator.

http://www.pdfforge.org/

 

Once you have correctly installed PDF Creator...

 

1. In MYOB select all invoices for printing and click Print

2. Select PDF Creator as the printer and click Print

3. A PDF dialogue box will open. Click "Wait - Collect" to open the print queue.

4. You will see each individual document loading into the print queue.

5. Once they have finished loading, click Document > Combine All

6. Wait a few seconds for PDF Creator to combine them into one pdf.

7. Click on Documents > Print

 

That's it! Hope it helps.

Our printer can staple 2 copies of an invoice when printed immediately after capture. However, when batch printing, MYOB sends the batch as 1 print job, so it staples the whole batch of different invoices together. Can batch printing send each invoice as an independent print job to facilitate auto stapling of 2 copies of an invoice?

This function was available in V19. The option to print to PDF as one file or separate files would be great.

Please remedy this ASAP.  Even Stuckster's workaround takes me way longer than it used to - not that I'm ungrateful.  Before I read that, I was about to roll back to V19 it was making so much more work for me.  I've put off upgrading to 2014 as long as possible but I knew it had to be done.  Got to say it hasn't been worth the pain.

I like to save my pay slips on file as well as printing them. Using AccountRight Plus v19, I would save them to file with Microsoft XPS Document writer, and I have been very happy with this. Since upgrading to AccountRight 2014, instead of saving all the pay slips as one file, it saves each pay slip as a separate file. This is very annoying and time consuming as I have to name each file individually. Could this please be changed somehow?
