Subject: Is DC now the default for printing labels?

I just tried to print a label for a request, and it came up with DC on it. I didn't print it because I don't use DC, but it looks like I'm out the fee for the DC - it's nonrefundable, even if you don't actually print it or use it. It appears that the DC option is now the default when I click on the print label button. Is there any way I can change it back to no DC as the default? I don't want to make this mistake again.

That happened to me today, too!  And my printer is broken, so it's tought luck for me, I guess.

I just printed a mailer and was given 3 choices.  My default choice was to just print the address with no extras.  Was not a problem at all.

Well, I went back and printed it because I had no choice. But the default used to be no DC or postage and it's suddenly changed. It's not a one-time thing, because I just got another order, and this time I checked before I hit print and changed it.

I do believe there is a tick box to remember these settings for the next time, so you can make your changes, and then tick the remember box, and then you will have a new default for you.

Sherry, my tick box doesn't work. :) It hasn't, since they introduced printable postage (I use DC). Every time I print a label, I have to check DC, as the default (for me) is printing just the label. No matter how many times I tell it to default to DC, it just doesn't.

Donna, I printed three labels tonight and my default was printing just the label. Maybe the tick box got checked somehow and yours worked?

My default changed yesterday too. The tick box never worked for me before either, like Sheri said. I always use the printable postage these days, and normally I have to be sure to move to the green choice. Yesterday when I printed a label, it was already there at the printable postage option and I'd done nothing different.

Yep for me too......I didn't want DC but HAD to have it..no choice.......I don't like this.I would rather be out the odd book rather than pay extra everytime I mail.

I used it before the mail went up though, but now it's not cheap to mail books especially heavy ones..

No, you have the choice, Denise, but it pops there, and then you have to change it. It's the default, but that's not unchangeable. Well, at least it's not unchangeable on mine, since I don't have any money there :)  I would ASSume it's changeable for you, but I'm not gonna guarantee what I can't see, I guess  :)  If it's NOT changeable after you are there, then I would write in feedback.

ETA: and the glitch is STILL there tonight, btw  :)

I wish mine was stuck on DC, since I always have to switch it back - I didn't before printable postage. :(

Ya know what they say about saying pleasing and everybody in the same sentence, right, Sheri! hahahahahahahha

I'll bet they think somedays they just can't win for losing. Altho, if they'd just fix the "save this as default" button, it might solve this on, if not any others!
