Dynamics GP 2015 – Printing Arabic Text

If you are planning to upgrade to GP 2015 and currently having Arabic text in your database need to be printed using report writer, make sure NOT TO UPGRADE to GP 2015.

Normally for printing Arabic text in report writer, if your keyboard was language the text will be displayed as rubbish data as below:

In order to get this printed properly, we used to switch the keyboard language to Arabic and the text will back to normal as below:

However for GP 2015, the system will automatically switch the keyboard language to English upon the generation of the report, and unfortunately the same switch is occurred upon hitting the print button, therefore the Arabic text will never be printed in Arabic and customers will start nagging!

Hope that Microsoft could resolve this soon!

Friday Funny: Make your own magic dragon

David Meego - Click for blog homepageIf you didn’t know, I collect dragon statues and figurines of all shapes, sizes, types and materials.

I now have over 180 of them ranging from a tiny pewter figurine of 1.2cm to a hand made stuffed toy of 70cm. They are made from all sorts of materials including: pewter, stone, glass, clay, resin, plastic, wood, rope, jade, amber and even coal.

The specific dragon that this post is about is made from paper (or card) and can be printed yourself. I already had one made up which was printed on paper using a monochrome laser printer. A while ago a printed a couple using a colour printer onto card, but had not cut them out and made them up until yesterday (after finding them again while doing some tidying up in my office).

Jerry & Andrus

The pattern (inspired by the works of Jerry Andrus) was created by the company Binary Arts, now called Think Fun, for an event called “Gathering for Gardner” to honour the legacy of Martin Gardner, long time columnist in Scientific American.

Check out the optical illusion of the dragon following you when you move in the video below.

Below are the links for the pdf files with the template, just print and follow instructions.

Once made up, position the dragon slightly on the diagonal and then close or cover one eye when you move around the room and the dragon will watch you.

You can find them at other places on the web as well:

Blame my wife for buying the first dragon many years ago, that started the collection. :-)

David

PS: The coin is the video and picture is an Australian five cent coin and is in the photo of every dragon in my collection to provide a scale reference.

Microsoft @HoloLens – The stuff of science fiction

I usually don’t deviate much off the topic of Microsoft Dynamics GP, but this new piece of Microsoft technology is certainly a force to be reckoned with and worth a note. If this thing works as advertised, pretty soon your interaction with the world around will be turned upside down, whether you are a gamer, a designer, an engineer, or who knows. Enjoy the videos and let me know what you think. Do you see this being used with Dynamics GP in the feature?

The folks over at C|Net decided to take it a bit further and create a complete holo-experience. Now, this stuff is really cool.

Until next post!
