In conclusion, the SHOTPlus™ suite's new print capability first released in SHOTPlus™ Surface version 6.9.3 streamlines printing across the application. SHOTPlus™ streamlines printing by combining most tools under the single print functionality and retiring the old system, resulting in a more efficient, customisable, and user-friendly experience.
