Deleting Multiple Stocks

The topic of deleting multiple stock definitions at the same time came up on the PrintSmith Forum yesterday and I wanted to warn everyone that this is something that should be rare. Why? Because the stocks are linked to your jobs from history and if you delete the stock then you have to assign a new one.

An alternative to deleting the stock would be to assign it an expiration date of yesterday and move it to a Stock Group called Expired or Discontinued. (You may even want to add the word Discontinued to the description.) PrintSmith will then give you a warning message that the stock price has expired. You can then use the stock filters to find your regular stocks quickly.

If you want to try it, please read the Release Notes for 7.2 on page 23. It doesn’t work the way you might think it would.

Also, be patient, I had to restart my computer to get it to work. Windows, gotta love it!
