  1. Running Filemaker Pro 11 and Filemaker Pro 11 Advanced under Windows 10 in compatibility mode for Windows 7. A customer has purchased a new HP LaserJet MSP426FPW that would not print reports from a filemaker solution I call MarinaPro. Everything works well on other customers Windows 10 computers connected to several different but older HP LaserJet printers. I found that the "Print" commands (Restore & No Dialog is set) within virtually all my associated scripts were set to a an HP LaserJet 4L printer I used at one time when creating solutions and that was moved to the trash heap several years ago. By clicking the print options "Specify" button, I had to select the current default printer and then I could print the reports. If you do not specify an output destination before saving the script or if the specified printer cannot be found when the script executes, the output from the script step is sent to the user’s default printer. I would have thought that "Print" should have found the "Current Default Printer". Any way to assure that it happens through scripting? In checking the available printers by opening Filemaker printer Setup, I can see several printers in the list that are no longer connected to the computer. Is there any way to clear or update the list of connected printers?
  2. Printing in different orientations

    I have a database, which has two printable forms. One has been designed in portrait, and the other in landscape. Both of them are only ever printed using buttons tied to script steps, never manually. I was hoping that there would be some way to specify orientation via the script. However, after some poking around of my own and light Google searching I am thinking this may not be so easy. I am able to go into Print setup to change the orientation just fine, however this sets it for the entire database which is not all around helpful. While specifying the options in the print step, I am able to change orientation. For some reason though, this changes the default orientation across the entire database. Not even while running the script, but just specifying it in the options of the script step. So now I'm at a loss. If this is not able to be done, redesigning one of the forms wouldn't be that difficult. But if there's a way to do what I'm trying to do, any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
  3. I have several reports that use Google Charts displayed through a web viewer to display a "'gas gauge" type of chart. This is a very popular style for our dashboard reports to the point where it is a requirement. I originally started using them in FileMaker 14 and they worked great. When FileMaker 15 came out they wouldn't work at first but then did after an update to the code. I'm now testing Filemaker 16 and they're back to not working properly. They do display on the screen just fine but if you try to print preview, print, or Send to PDF they do not show. Does anybody have experience with this or know if a setting changed in FMPA 16 that could be causing them to not print?
  4. Hey all; I'm working with a client who has a multi-file .fmp12 solution. Every time she attempts to print from one specific file, it prints out in B&W, despite her selection of colour from the printer drivers. Printing from other .fmp12 files is fine, and printing from other applications is fine too though. I've gone through all of the Preferences and File Options, and couldn't find anything that fit the bill, so I went so far as creating a clone of that file, and resetting the print setup options... still to no avail. Has anyone else experienced anything similar? Got any suggestions on what else I could try? Also, when we first go into Print Setup's options, we get presented with this dialog box (see attached image). Obviously, we've tried unchecking the box to use Xerox's black and white conversion, but even that doesn't do the trick for us. Thanks in advance; Matt
  5. We recently bought an Evolysis Card Printer, which prints Front and Back of the card automatically. (Current Situation: We are using a Corel Draw template, the front is on page 1, while the back side is on page 2.. when we want to print, we simply select page 1 and 2 and the printer prints the ID Card front and Back automatically) However, with filemaker, we print the front and then inserts the card back to the printer so as to print the back side. Thus, the layout design of our database has the Front Side on one layout, and then the Back side on another layout. With this new Printer, how can we leverage on its dual page printing capability in designing our layout? Is there a way to design the layout such that the printer knows which is page 1 and which is page 2?
  6. No access to toolbar

    I am showing a layout in Preview prior to printing. However once one this layout (in Preview mode) I can not figure out a way for the user to actually print it. 1. I have set the Available Menu Commands to Editing, as I do not want the users to accidentally delete all records. However this greys out the Print and Save as PDF options. This also seems to remove the ability to select File > Print. 2. Additionally because I am in Preview mode I can not add any buttons to the layout without having them appear on the print out. I am want to avoid the work of creating custom menus as there are a lot of files. Printing from Preview mode would seem to be a relatively regular occurrence. Is there a simple way to do this that I am missing?

  8. dear fmforums, i have a printer that is attached to my airport express. i am printing from my iphone via "handy print app". is there a print option, script or something that would allow me to print directly to my printer through my airport without using that "handy print app"? i guess that creating a script which would print to the printers MAC address would work. any ideas? rr

For Now I have a the following script: Freeze Window Go to Layout ["Labels"(Labels)] Show all Records Delete All Records [No Dialog] Loop New Record/Request Set Variable [X; Value (GetFondCount)] Set variable [$_Text; Value Material Description:".........] Set Field [Labels::Label; $_text] Set Variable[$_text; Value"Location: & $Location] Exit Loop if $X≥$_MatnContainers End Loop Enter Preview Mode [Pause] Print [Restore] Go to Layout [("Materials)] Enter Browse Mode Thank you so much in advance.

  10. I have several reports which I'd like the user to be able to select from a list and then have FM print overall upon one button press, rather than the current set up I have which is a button on each report which fires the relevant print script. To add a little layer of complexity to the process, the reports need a letter index added to them prior to printing. This is because, depending on the circumstances, in one instance Report XYZ could have an index position of say, 'D', but the next time, due to an additional report being required, Report XYZ would have the index position of 'E'. This index position needs to be visible on the report. The reason I'm posting is because I'm not really certain where to start on this one. The one thing I do have is a table which lists all the reports and currently allows a user to enter any report via a portal list based on that table. Any thoughts or suggestions greatly appreciated on this! Thanks
  11. Hi there I've created several sub summary reports which require a column set up which needs to be aligned to the right, ensuring it's straight, good looking and professional. I have to put percentage figures alongside the values and when these are viewed on the normal layout, they're (mostly) ok. When I print preview, or when I print, the percent sign gets chopped straight down the middle, as if either the cell is too small or the padding is incorrect. I've tried adjusting both the size and the padding, to no avail. When I remove the right align on the percent cell, the problem goes. However, I need these percentages to be organised as well and so far this is not working. I've added a couple of images to illustrate, the first from the screen, the second from the preview page. Hopefully somebody else has seen this and has some advice Thanks in advance
  12. New printer is blowing up font sizes

    We just installed an HP LaserJet M525c printer and every report that FileMaker 11 prints to it has enlarged logos/fonts (see attached image). We haven't had this issue printing from any other program -- Word, Excel, even printing to a PDF from FM and then printing that PDF with Adobe. I've run different reports from different databases and each time, the report is printed faintly in the background with gigantic wording (the correct field headers and data fields) are blown up over top of it. Has anyone ever had this experience? Any ideas for a solution?

  15. I need to print labels for items (products), and the number of labels (copies) for each product is calculated in a field of the database. Each record calls for a number of items to be labeled with specific instructions for packing (date, location, etc.). For example: Record 1 calls for 3 items type no.1 Record 2 calls for 1 item type no.2 Record 3 calls for 7 items type no. 5, and so on... I have duplicated the number of records in a separate database just for printing, but is so tedious (I have to process one record at a time) and is error sensitive. The databases I work with, generally have between 200 and sometimes up to 2,000 records (or more) per database. And each one can generate from 200 to 5,000 labels (or more), that's why I'm looking for a more convenient solution. Any ideas are really appreciated.

  17. Hi all, I have a filemaker customer database and one layout includes a webviewer to display the map from google-maps for a customer's location. While the map is displayed perfectly in browse mode I am having the problem that when I print the record or enter preview mode, the content of the web viewer is blank. I have fiddled with all options in Inspector but I cannot find a way around this and am finding it very challenging! One time only, for no apparent reason it displayed correctly in preview but since then nothing - Is this a known bug? Any help would be very greatly appreciated as I'm getting ready to tear my hair out.... :-/ I am using FM Pro Advance 11 on Mac OSX 10.7.5 and this is the custom code I have in the webviewer: "data:text/html, <style type='text/css'> html,body { overflow:hidden; } </style> <html> <head> <title>NavText</title> </head> <body bgcolor='#FFFFFF' TopMargin='0' style='border:0'> <iframe width='" & GetLayoutObjectAttribute ( "WebViewer" ; "width" ) & "' height='" & GetLayoutObjectAttribute ( "WebViewer" ; "height" ) & "' frameborder='0' scrolling='no' marginheight='0' marginwidth='0' src='http://local.google.com/maps?q=" & DATABASE::Street 1 & "," & DATABASE:City" & "," & DATABASE ::Postal Code 1 & "&amp;output=embed&iwloc=0&z=17'> </iframe> </body> </html>" regards, Jeb.
  18. I have a FM Go13 database that requires me to print a report. I've scripted the print routing with both a page setup and print command. In the print command I request a PDF be created. I understand, after reading the FM 13 user manual that FM GO doesn't support creation of a PDF format. Is there any way that I can create a document that can be emailed? The mobile users won't have any access to a local printer. Without a PDF type solution, the database is really compromised

  20. Crestline, CA, Oct 24, 2013 -- Dracoventions has released 2empowerFM Hands-Free Printer v3.1 to fix issues with the new OS X 10.9 Mavericks. No Mavericks compatibility problems were found with the remaining plug-ins in the 2empowerFM family. Updates are available immediately at 2empowerFM.com for both Macintosh and Windows. This release also brings a new licensing policy: Plug-in updates have always been free for a year, but now you also get minor updates beyond that year. Since OS X changed to a yearly release schedule, we found that too many people had to purchase a license upgrade almost yearly just to keep up with each new OS X, so we've changed our policy to eliminate that burden. See the release notes for more fixes and features available in the latest plug-in release, including improvements to pop-up and dropdown menus.

  21. Setting different page orientation

    Hello, Any tips about getting about this global setting of page orientation? Looking at a few plugins but it looks like I am paying for a whole bunch of extra features I don't want. Thanks!
  22. Printing Problem

    I have a report that is a layout with 3 tabs. Whenever I try and print the report I just get blank pages. 8 blank pages. I have no idea why. Every since my company started using FileMaker we've had issues with printing. I've checked for any weird Sliding things or Hide Objects during printing and I don't see anything. Is there some reason is won't print?
  23. I have a custom label layout with a 1” header. Each label is 4” wide and 7” long, in Portrait format, on 22” X 17” paper. (Double-size business cards).  I am printing 5 labels across in 2 rows, 10 labels per page.  The layout's Header lets me put a Printer’s Crop vertical line at precisely 4” and at precisely 8” at the top. So it places the crop mark for the first and second columns only.  My layout doesn’t let me ‘see’ the remaining 3 columns to put in the Crop Marks. The header area for these last 3 columns is greyed out. I can put the Crop mark there, but it doesn’t print.  My attached screenshot shows the first two crop marks in the header’s ‘white space’ and the 12” mark for the 3rd crop mark being grey.  As well, although I have a left and right margin, I cannot figure out how to put in crop marks to cut between the two rows.  Any thoughts? Even getting just the 3 missing right hand column crop marks in the Header would be helpful.  Thanks, David

  25. Hello, I have a set of records (Samples) to print. Many of the samples have a child record (Letters). I need to print the Samples from paper tray 1 and the Letters from paper tray 2, and I need to print all the records in order. Something like Sample/Letter/Sample/Sample/Sample/Letter - Each Sample, then the letter attached to that Sample, if present. So what do you guys think? Possible? Impossible? Needing a plugin? I'm looking for any ideas or suggestions you might have. Thanks
