Print Management in 4.0 SP2

It seems like the print management (4.0 SP2) setup for external documents is totally ignored when you print an already updated document or when you print free text invoices.

That is quite annoying since for example the sales invoice by default is printed in landscape. I can’t recall ever having met a customer that did not print the invoice in portrait.

I'd love to hear from anyone having a quick fix for this bug or if anyone know if MS will fix it in SP3.

Best Practice check on labels in forms and reports

When you run a Best Practice check on forms and reports, it will check labels that end with a punctuation. These are in general not allowed, except in help texts.

There is in SysBPCheck.checkLabelBasics a list of approved exceptions to the rule. This list however, is in EN-US only. If you run BP in EN-US the label “Invoiceno.” is all right, but if you run it in for example Danish, the Danish equivalent to this label, “Fakturanum.” will give you a BP error.

So if you run a BP check in any language apart from EN-US you could end up with a lot of BP errors from SYS elements.
