Page Setup Problem

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

I have a solution working with 2 print formats with the same printer, I have filemaker pro 10 advanced for windows and I don´t know why even if I select specify page setup with one format and then select the other one filemaker doesn´t respect the preferences previously selected.

 

I thought at the beginning that Filemaker page setup preferences responded to printer control panel setup but after some tests I realized that filemaker respond to the main menu print setup.

 

It´s confusing and my client tells me that I should record the correct setup for each case but how I tell him that filemaker doesn´t do that???

 

is there any plug in that handles something with more precision???

 

any advice???

 

thanks

Are you talking about printing wtihin a SCRIPT? Or manually printing?

 

FileMaker is going to keep the last thing you did via File menu --> Page Setup when you print manually.

 

In a script, if you include Print Setup [restore], with or without dialog, any subsequent Print script steps will utilize those restored settings and ignore the last thing you did manually in File menu --> Page setup.
