Slow Printing

Printing from Moneydance is really really slow (120 seconds wait) and often bugs out. I understand this might be related to my using Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6 and is a Javascript issue, but I have to use this OS to support an array of video/audio software I use. If I upgrade or downgrade my system software it opens a can of worms with all my other software which right now are all super stable.

Is there a workaround with Moneydance to enable painless printing?

    I'm a fellow user.

    It is an issue between the last three releases of Sierra and the Java Run time environment, it was corrected by Apple in High Sierra.

    The Moneydance programmers did all they could to reduce the time lag, but there is only so much they could do at the Moneydance level.

    The only workaround is to save reports as an HTML file and use something like your browser, word processor to print it. This obviously will not work for things like Cheques.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    Indeed, saving the reports as an HTML and then opening that HTML file in Excel, or Numbers, or some spreadsheet program seems to work really nicely. I don’t have to print cheques so that will work for me.
