Shop Papers: Eliminate pop-ups to print shop paper


Hello experts,

We have set up a shop paper routine from IW38 which has been working fine for a long time but the customer does not like the pop-ups which appear when he has to display the shop paper in PDF form.

Our current procedure works like this.

We select the work order which is displayed after selecting transaction IW38. After the work order is displayed, we select the menu option ORDER/PRINT ORDER. We then get a pop-up asking us to select shop paper which also has the output device LCL. We click on the PRINT PREVIEW button at the bottom of the pop-up. We now get another pop-up for print shop paper and we have to select PRINT PREVIEW again which then displays the shop paper. The shop paper in PDF format is then printed from the display. The requirement is to eliminate the 2 pop-ups and print directly from the work order.

Please advise if this is a feature that can be changed from the print program or is it configuration.

Thank you for any help.
