Sorry, been busy! Not really urgent, it's only a minor thing.

Odd Quirk

Hi John, I have noticed an odd quirk in my EstLite. When I tick the 'collected' check boxes, if it is the last job on the list, it ticks off the one above instead of the correct one. It took me a while to figure out where a job that should have been on the Jobs Ready For Collection list had disappea...

Optimistic Ebayer!

I stumbled across this Mackenzie Thorpe print on eBay - who thinks that this would look perfectly fine in a new frame and mount as the description suggests?!!

Re: Suggestion

I've only just realised that you have already done it - that was quick! EstLite wouldn't update from within the program so I have had to download it again, but all is working as it should and will make my life much easier. Many thanks for the improvement John!

Suggestion

My suggestion for an improvement to EstLite is one I keep thinking would be good but never get round to mentioning it, but after checking 'jobs not yet completed' and 'uncollected jobs' rather a lot in the last few days it's something I could really do with. Is it possible for the 'uncollected jobs'...

Re: Restore / Repair Very Old Frames?

I'm just giving them the contact details and keeping out of it - no idea what budget they have in mind! Not much point me getting involved as well, just said I'd ask around as a favour to my friend who works at the school.

Re: Restore / Repair Very Old Frames?

I think they are quite keen to preserve the original frames due to their age and history.

I think they probably need someone like this! http://ruth-tappin.co.uk/picture-frame-restoration.

Restore / Repair Very Old Frames?

Hello, Had a friend ask if I can restore some very very old ornate frames for a school, but that definitely doesn't fall within my skill range. Does anyone on here do that sort of thing or can recommend anyone please? She has sent me one quick phone photo to give you an idea of what is required! Any...

Rounding Prices

Can the prices in EstLite be rounded to make nicer numbers? I thought I had done this once before as all my prices come to the nearest 10p but now I can't find the setting (if there is one!) - I thought I might round to the nearest £1 instead. Thanks in advance for your help!

Re: Pet hates

Ha ha, know what you mean about long sleeves, luckily some ladies jumpers are available with 3/4 sleeves which are brilliant! My husband bought a pair of sleeve garters for a Peaky Blinders party that will probably never be used again - shall I post them on?!! Or just this pile of elastic bands that...

Re: Pet hates

My current pet hate as I have had a bit of an influx over the last couple of weeks, is the dirt brought in on pictures that people want re-framing. Inch thick dust, cobwebs, spiders (dead and alive) and my personal favourite - cat sick. I would be embarrassed to take something to a shop in that stat...

Ahhh, that lightbulb moment! Just realised there was a newer version of EstLite available, and now I've installed that it's all working and I have found Larson Juhl! :D

Re: Arqadia / Larson Juhl Price List

I am not seeing the Larson Juhl option and when I click 'Download List of Suppliers' it tells me EstLite does not have internet access?! It suggests it may be being blocked by a Firewall but I have just checked this and it is allowed, so I'm a bit baffled.

Arqadia / Larson Juhl Price List

Hello! It occurred to me that I am still typing the prefix aq for Arqadia/LJ mouldings, but then realised the downloaded price list is still prefixed with aq too. Will it be changing to LJ at any point to confuse me?!

Re: Check your Arqadia invoices for Carriage Charges.

I've just had an over £60 chop order with carriage added, emailed them back and they are crediting it back to me. Annoying having to keep checking invoices though because LJ STILL haven't sorted out the bugs in the system.

Child Friendly?

Out for a stroll along Cromford Canal last Sunday, and saw this sign in the old railway carriages at High Peak Junction - would it be wrong to have a copy in my shop?!

Re: larson juhl samples warning

I have had a reply from LJ - their system is not registering that samples are FOC carriage and they have removed the charge for me. If you've been charged you'd better contact them for a refund!

Re: larson juhl samples warning

I've just noticed that I have a pending delivery of two small samples with an invoice for £7.20 carriage. Hoping it's just another thing they are getting wrong but have emailed to ask, and told them to cancel it if they are charging!
