About the product to print

I understand the whole process, but I have doubts about how it does from the POS when I print on each order printer, what product it prints. The product must have where to indicate which order printer to use

There are product categories in the printer configuration. The module sends products from the selected category to the printer. If you need to print a specific product printed on a specific printer, try this module https://github.com/it-projects-llc/pos-addons/tree/12.0/pos_order_printer_product

by
Gloval
on 1/17/19, 9:50 AM

I have a point of sale with a network printer and I need to modify the information printed on the ticket, for example I want the name of the product and the quantity to be centered, could someone tell me where I can find the file that contains that information? I imagine it is an .xml that is somewhere but I can not find it. Thank you.
