Setup is accessed from the navigation sidebar, or from the setup menu in the file menu. The settings are in a single window with multiple tabs.
The settings include:
The devices tab lists all the available devices and how they communicate with the ScaleQ program. Devices may be connected serially, via TCP/IP, or a custom interface.
To see the properties of an existing device, highlight it and click on the properties button. The properties can then be edited and tested. This is useful in troubleshooting. To add a device, click on the new button. If the new device will be attached through an existing device, highlight the existing icon and then click on new.
To remove a device from the list, highlight the device, and click delete. You will be asked for confirmation.
Two common devices that can be added are a scale and a printer.
Other types of devices are optionally available to be added; please consult with ILS to determine feasibility.
To add a scale:
Note: Depending on the licensing purchased, the number of scales that can be added may be limited. An office license does not allow any scales to be added. A basic license allows one to three scales to be added. An extended license allows four or more scales. You can check with ILS to see what kind of license you have.
To add a remote printer:
Remote printers are associated with a scale to print tickets when a transaction is completed.
To configure the advanced properties:
The advanced configuration dialog is used to define the printer's definition file and the numbers of characters on each line. The dialog is accessed by clicking the button to the right of model in the identification tab.

To delete a device:
