Menu

When you click the PfT button the menu appears.

The image shows the simplest version of the menu, the one you get when there is just one email selected when you click the PfT button. In other situations the menu may include option settings that you may want to change before PfT loads and analyses the selected emails.

If you do not move the mouse onto the menu it will disappear and it will disappear when you move the mouse off the menu.

When you first try PfT the Register button will be the first item on the menu. If you buy a licence the details are stored on Greenhill Software’s licence database. Clicking the Register button will cause PfT to contact the database and store the details of the licence relating to your email address in your computer’s Windows Registry. All restrictions on your use of PfT will then be removed and the Register button will no longer appear on the menu.

The largest button is the Launch Print for Trial button. It will start the process of PfT loading and analysing the emails that are selected when you click the menu and button and opening the main PfT form.

If you only want to process a single email, or if you have already selected the multiple emails you want to process then clicking the Launch button will get you going. You may need to move to a different folder if you have assembled the relevant emails there. If you need help finding the relevant emails then Outlook’s Search feature is what you need. You can type your query straight into Outlook’s search box or you can click the PfT Menu’s Find Relevant Emails button. This opens PfT‘s Search Query Builder, a form that lets you enter your search terms, i.e. defining what you are looking for. This may be a single email address or an email domain (so you get the emails of multiple people from the same organisation. If your search is a little more complex, say you want to include emails from two or three different people then the form will help you construct the query in the correct way. See http://printfortrial.com/search-assistant/.

Clicking the Send Feedback button will prepare an email addressed to support at Greenhill Software, the makers of PfT, for you to send your comments, questions and suggestions. PfT‘s log file will be set as an attachment to the email. You can open it if you want to see what information is in it.

The Help button will take you to the relevant page on the PfT web site, though you can then use the site’s menu to go to other pages.

Clicking the About button will display a simple message including all the technical details of the software and the current licence details.

If you click the PfT button with more than one email selected there will be an extra section at the top of the menu,

The PfT Processing options allows you to change the way PfT processes the emails. Usually you will want PfT to identify and separate each message within the email but there may be times when you just want the main message of each email without the other messages that have been appended to it (added at the end). If you wanted to make that choice click the relevant option before clicking the Launch button.
