  • Don’t worry if you don’t see the complete verbiage. It will appear in the receipt when you’re ready to print out or email. However, if that still makes you nervous, you can do the following:
  • In the Report Designer window, click on the label that has your verbiage. Hold the left mouse button down and move/drag the label box a tiny distance, the complete verbiage appears.


  • In the Report Designer window, click on File | Save.
  • Click on File | Close.
  • You will be back at the Receipt Setup window in Wintix. Click on the Save changes button.
