At the risk of posting what has been answered...

I just want to know if with this new version (7) can you now

"program" to print to a specific printer; decide from which tray; program

the number of copies?? Rather then have FM "remember" the settings.

If yes, is it available in all versions of FM (pro, devel...)??

thanks

Version: v5.x

Platform: Windows 95/98

Farytails... could come true... they could happen to you....

Sorry no..

You will still need plug-ins to change printers.

I am sure the print setup is still captured the same way as before.

Actually, in v7 the Print Setup[ ] settings are not 'remembered' within a script step as they were in previous versions of FileMaker, but rather, are explicitly entered into a dialog within the ScriptMaker.

One of the consequences of this is that it is now possible to have more than one Print Setup stored within a single script - and the same is true of the other 'remembering' script commands such as Perform Find[ ], Sort[ ], Import Records[ ], Export Records[ ] and several new script steps - all are explicitly configured within ScriptMaker dialogs in v7.

As to the selection of a printer, that may depend on the OS and driver you're using, but in general I believe that Stephen is correct.

BTW, note also that although you're currently using Win95/98, the minimum requirements for v7 on Windows are 2000/XP, and printing is a rather different story in that environment. wink.gif
