Your quantity per field when printed or previewed as indicated on the parts list/BOM view does not show in the correct location.

As an add on, neither does the Type field.

When looking at a BOM you see the 'menu' button at the top of the window. Click that and select the option to "Show/Hide Columns"

In there you can select which columns are visible in the grid and which visible columns will also be printed.

Are the columns set to be visible and to print? If some columns are set to 'not' print then that will of course affect the position of other columns when printing.

They print, but the field print preview view differs from the order of the columns in the actual BOM view.

Sorry. I've been a little slow. I've suddenly realized what's going on.

The columns in Work Order/BOM View on screen can be rearranged. The columns can be dragged to different places on the view.
If you rearrange the columns into a different order then MiniMRP remembers that order and displays the view in the same order next time.

That rearranging is permitted on a user by user basis so different users may prefer to see the columns in a different order.

But the print is fixed and can't be rearranged. It always prints in the original/default/standard order.

So you are correct. But it's the way it's always worked and, strangely, you are the first person to ever mention this.

All I can do at this stage is put this into the 'TODO' box and we'll have it looked at to see if there's a reason for always printing in the default layout.

The reason is that i want to print the BOM out, and the default order is not the ideal way to display. It saves exporting and then printing. Just a time saver if you can fix. There is a work around.
