Question Fluke 189 vs 289

Hi Sparks, Got a question regarding flukeview form with the 189 and 289.
When I set the 189 to autohold (Logging) and connect it to the laptop running the flukeview software, every measurement logged with the autohold function, would show up in to the flukeview form. This is not possible with the 289. I would have to save each logged measurement using the autohold function but could only saved it to the internal memory of the meter and download it later to the form. This is a bit difficult when one is wearing the high voltage gloves.(Hard to press the save button).
Does anyone know if there is a way to log it like the 189?
Another quick one is, does anyone realise that Flukeview crashes most of the time when printing directly to PDF printer?
Please enlightened me.
Thanks.

Use PDF995 as your print driver instead of what you're using now.

Hey Iloong, I appreciate you posting that, I was wondering the same question, have you had any experience with making your own forms? i tried to make new columns in a new displayed readings form but the meter overrides the new forms settings and i end up with the default form again, any advice?
