Previewing and Printing Preprocessing Details

Accelerus Icon

In many locations throughout Accelerus you may preview and print out listings, including in the Preprocess pane when importing CSV files, rolling over data, changing entity codes, etc.

The Print Preview window is the same in each case and it not only allows you to view the listing on screen, but to print selected or all pages and export the listing.

The toolbar at the top of the Print Preview window contains a wide range of tools that activate the many features of the window.

The Table of Contents groups the records found in the listing. In some cases, these groups may be opened further to reveal sub-groupings or records.

Click the required record or group to be taken directly to its page in the listing. You may hide the Table of Contents by clicking its icon in the toolbar.


You may toggle between Table of Contents and Thumbnail view, the latter allowing you to see and scroll through thumbnails versions of the pages of the report. Clicking on a page's thumbnail takes you directly to that page of the report.


The Preview window's toolbar contains a wide range of icons allowing you to control the look of the listing in the preview window, as well as to print or export the listing to a file.


The listing is shown in the Print Preview window. Most of the icons in the toolbar control the look of the listing in the window, eg you may zoom in or out, to see more or less of the listing, control how many pages are shown at once, etc.
