“I chose TERM because it offers a better communications package in terms of dialogue and protocol flexibility. I also found the price within a reasonable range to make it cost effective in the long run.”

When using TinyTERM Pro for iPad, a transparent print job that has a full 80-character line ending in a CR/LF pair is counted incorrectly. This throws off the count for a full page, which causes the print job to have incorrect page break placement.

When using AirPrint for a transparent print job, a full 80-character line that ends in a carriage return/line feed pair (CRLF) is counted as two lines, even though it prints as one. This throws off the page length counter, causing the print job to feed a new page before it’s needed.

TinyTERM Pro for iPhone includes the capability to print the screen or send transparent print jobs to email. When this is done on iOS 6, any custom keyboard selected in TinyTERM Pro is ignored. Instead, the standard iPhone keyboard displays no matter what keyboard changes are made. Closing and restarting TinyTERM Pro is the only way to fix the display. This does not affect iPads running iOS 6, only iPhones and iPod Touch devices.

TinyTERM for Windows includes an option to bypass the printer drivers. Century Software, Inc., has had a request to add the same capability to TinyTERM for Mac.

TinyTERM does not save Windows printer settings. It will write information to the .tpx file about the current printer settings, but that does not properly restore due to the binary hash table Windows uses for such things as margins, lines and columns.

In some instances, TinyTERM will not change the printer selection on Windows 7. The printer can be selected, but on returning to printer setup, it has not been changed.
The workaround is to edit the .tpx file, changing the prnwndix entry to prnwndix=1. This still does not allow the printer to be changed through TinyTERM’s user interface, but it does change the printer setting in most cases.

Century Software, Inc., has received a report that printing to the Zebra GX420t label printer via USB fails from TinyTERM. The application either crashes or its display becomes unreadable. This happens regardless of the printer settings in TinyTERM or the Zebra printer driver version.
On Windows Vista, the printer driver can be bypassed, which allows TinyTERM to print properly and continue functioning. The same setting fails on Windows XP. Century Software has been unable to duplicate this issue.

When using Century LPD on Windows 7 or Vista, print jobs won’t come through by default. A Windows XP system on the same network won’t have any problems.
This is due to increased firewall security in newer versions of Windows. To allow LPD print jobs, you’ll need to add both CenLPD.exe and CenLPDstatus.exe to the list of exceptions in the Windows firewall, as well as to any third-party firewall software you may have running. Both applications should be allowed full network access.
For TinyTERM Plus 4.60 or 4.61, you will also need to go to Start | All Programs | Startup. Right-click on the CenLPDstatus icon there and select Properties. In the properties for the shortcut, enable the “Run as Administrator” option. TinyTERM Plus versions 4.62 and higher don’t require this step.

If you use TinyTERM’s keyboard mapper to map a key to print the screen, the key does nothing. It doesn’t matter which of the available commands is used. The screen cannot be printed from a key.
