do not installUPDATE :

These problems were found in version 1.3.10 :
– WaiterOne on iPad 1 doesn’t start up anymore
– Open text and open price stops working after being used once (!)

An update (1.3.11) has been sent to Apple yesterday and we are now waiting for the review and the release of this emergency release. As we asked for an expedited review I guess it will be released any moment now.

UPDATE 2 :

WaiterOne 1.3.11 was released by Apple today.

Added to this version is the Chinese translation done by Xiao Wang.

Koffie&Ik

In Utrecht, the Netherlands, there is this great little place called Koffie&Ik (Coffee & me) : www.koffieenik.nl. The Dutch Apple magazine MacFan did a 4 page review about this coffee shop, of course, hence the name of the magazine, they had some interests in WaiterOne. Thanks guys!

Forgotten printer parameter

This week I visited a new client of WaiterOne: Svenska Baren in Puerto Rico, G.C. Armed with my MacBook Pro and my iPad mini, I would tackle a ticket printer layout bug. As I don’t have an Epson TM-T20II here to test, I just made an appointment with the owner of the place to test it onsite. Connect my hardware to his network, …, ready, set, … debug :

As you see, the ticket width doesn’t seem to be used completely. But then again, the total of the ticket seems to be well aligned, also the text printed in the header and the footer seems to be exactly in the middle. Strange no? As my personal printer on my work place, seems to be working perfect. Small detail, it is not an Epson TM-T20II, but a Epson TM-T88V with wifi interface.

It didn’t took me long to see that the printing was just that little bit smaller then my own test prints. So if it prints smaller, then it probably also prints more columns?

Downloaded the Epson TM-T20II and the Epson TM-T88V specs and indeed, the first printer prints in Font A 48 characters, in Font B 64 characters on 1 line, the latter printer does 42 characters and 56 characters respectively in Font A and Font B. Eureka!!

As soon as I changed in WaiterOne the characters to 64 on the bill printer (data -> printers -> bill -> ticket : characters) all seems to be working as it should. Everybody happy, table foosball puppet included :
