Although the 'Touch Tablet' mode does make Transactor Lab Manager easier for touch screen use, if your tablet is going to be used for intensive entry of job information then consider also getting a compatible keyboard or a low-cost integrated desktop PC instead. There are some operations which may be faster using a separate keyboard rather than the tablet/touch screen's pop up screen keyboard.
We recommend downloading the free Transactor Lab Manager trial to get familiar with the different way of working with touch screens. See 'Working with touch screens' below.
Choosing your tablet
Most tablets come with Windows, Apple or Android operating systems.
Transactor Lab Manager will install directly on a Windows 10 Pro tablet (If you are not sure then check your tablet has the same Windows desktop that you're used to seeing on a Windows desktop PC).
Apple / iPad
Currently there is no version of Transactor Lab Manager for iPads (iOS). Transactor Lab Manager will run fine on Mac desktop and laptops using virtualisation software. See I have an Apple Mac - Can I use Transactor Lab Manager?
Currently there is no version of the Transactor Lab Manager application for Android.
Working with touch screens
Once you have installed Transactor Lab Manager, set the user preferences to the Touch Tablet Look & Feel.
- From the Tools menu choose My Preferences
- In the Look & Feel box, choose 'Touch Tablet'.
