Print or Copy a Drake Tax Data Entry Screen

How can I print or copy data entry screens? For example, the SSA and 1099-MISC/1099-NEC screens don’t produce a form in view mode so I want to copy them from data entry.

You can easily copy or print a Drake Software data entry screen. Open the screen you need to print and right click anywhere on it. From the drop list, point to Screenshot, and from the resulting drop list select one of these three options:

  • To File. Save a bitmap image of the screen. You are prompted for a file name.
  • To Printer. Print a copy of the screen from the printer dialog box. If you have a PDF printer installed on your computer (such as PDF995), you can print the image to a PDF file format.
  • To Clipboard. Save an image of the screen to the clipboard. Immediately after making this selection, you can paste the image into a document, an email or an image editor such as MS Paint.

On Windows 7 and forward, you can use the Snipping Tool, if available.
