Common Item

  1. The symbols fields and preview buttons have been removed from bank code maintenance.

Users should then print a sample of every report to make sure everything prints correctly. The preview in bank code maintenance was also misleading that the font chosen here would print corretly in Crystal since it displayed properly. But adobe fonts that were not compatible with Crystal and which would not print, would display correctly in Bank Code Maintenance.
