How can I print multiple layouts easily

I am an advanced novice - Just getting familiar with scripts... - I am creating a database with multiple layouts that will serve as separate pages of the same record (Not the same info layed out differently). When finished I would like to print from 10 - 12 layouts quickly and easily. Maybe another layout page that has a list of all the other layouts with checkboxes where I can select what I want to print and hit a print button once.

Can anyone point me in the right direction???

Set up each "report" to operate separately.

In your scripts create a condition that if you have a field "gPrintAll" = 1 then it would bypass the print dialog box and the print preview.

A print all script would set the "gPrintAll" field to 1 and then perform each of the individual scripts.

when finished it would set the field back to "0"

In the individual scripts you would test this field. And perform a branch accordingly, show print preview and or the print dialog box. or not.

Depending on your layouts if they are all FORM view you could put all of the separate layouts on one really long layout.

Then you just print the 1 layout it would print x pages for each record.

But this won't work if one of them is a List View.
