@codes for Orders Mode

Here is my situation:

In a school job, for each subject, I have a proof printed along with their package (or only a proof if they do not order). On that proof I have the @package code to break down what they order which is pulled out of Details Mode from the order field. My problem is, whenever I process an order out of Orders mode (for a re-order or retake, etc), the order information from Orders Modes doesn't populate on my proof. I was just wondering if there's a workaround for this, or another @code that I can put on my template that will show whatever I'm printing for a specific subject. Right now, I have to add the order in Details Mode along with the order in Orders Mode for it to populate on the proof.

Any ideas?

    @package only fills from the default queue. If you're using order sets its not going to work unless, as you figured out, you re-add the order to the default set. For you this is happening when you add the order in details mode. The workaround for what you're doing is to keep the things you want to show up on your "proof", being what they've ordered I'm assuming, in the default set until you're done printing.
    We ran into this problem early on and just adjusted our workflow to not require order sets until order packlists were printed and everything was shipped.
