Hi Amos,
We use CoPath and we do not have this problem. The only thing you cannot do
is perform more than one function (i.e. make labels and view gross at
another terminal) on the same case at the same time. Check with your IS
supervisor and see if there is some other conflict in the server.

    I just switched jobs to a lab that uses Copath systems. I have noticed
we cant have two terminals open at the same time. Is there any way around
