Ways to handle Quantity

I have a busy “Package Beer” Menu where I have split the beers into 3 types using sub-menus tags. The Operator asked if they could have all beers on 1 menu :confounded:

Here are the 3 screens:

So If I loose the Number Keypad EXCEPT the Editor Line - I loose the ability for Quick Quantity i.e. press [4] and then Menu Item.

NOTE: I am trying to size all screens to a 12" inch tablet as shown in these images.

Other than using automation and [?prompt] are there any other ideas that may help?

Small keypad? Puts 1-5 across the top instead of full keypad at bottom.
Also you can change the % height of the keypad although buttons obviously start getting small.

You could make custom keypad with just two lines 0-4 and 5-9 and set a much lower height %.

Hey JTR - how you doing, good I hope have not spoke in a while!

So you suggesting [:Prompt] automation or is there options in MenuItems for custom keyboard (think there is…)?


have a look at rickh origional retail setup before he switched to custom menu item buttons where he was using virtually full screen keyboard.

not sure why that didnt seem to upload…

Yep just found that - great. Looking at Ricks setup again, gees that must of took some work! Makes the screen look like its 50" wide…

Its a 21inch touchscreen haha but looked ok on my 15 mch laptop lol

And yea took me ages and isnt so simple to make quick changes so i now use custom product buttons for a fully customised pos screen. The idea is ill have all payment buttons and other function buttons at the bottom with a customised keypad, and above it is all the most popular items (im doing a bar setup) then for anything else theres a bar menu button that takes you to a screen with all the categories and products to select anything not on the main “quick screen” i also dont use the settle screen at all :smile:


For just a minimal numberpad to make more space it wouldnt be to bad @pauln :wink:

If your looking to retain full numpad functionality Im using this custom keyboard
I have the height set to 30%


Yes did thanks @emre - just don’t like the position being at the top… Hey nice menu setup :wink:
Now I wonder how that will look on a 12" Tablet (Surface 3) and if its usable?

@silentbob - thanks so much that’s perfect, appreciate you sharing.

I think I will either go with this OR Automtion Command with a POPUP prompt? It does mean an extra key press that is similar to the old POS.

Emre be really nice in future to have a POP-OUT slider so options for Keyboard are [Large|Small|Slider|Not Used].
Just saying …
