I have been looking for a solution in FM7 to keep printer selection consistent for a given layout. I have installed appl. and tried an external autofil script but can not get it to work. Has anyone had any success with this option? I have included the thread where I found the script, from Slimjim

http://www.fmforums.com/forum/showtopic.php?tid/170285/post/180139/hl/autoit/#180139

I have tried the other offerings on this link also, and have had no success.

My printers are all a shared resource on our server, and are listed in "print setup" as an UNC path i.e. servernameprinter1, servernameprinter2...., wondering if this is my problem.

Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

I had the same problem as i wanted specific layouts to print via a pdf printer. what worked for me is to have the following in the script step

print setup (perform no dialog,specific page setup both ticked) Select printer and orientation.

print(perform no dialog, specify print options both ticked)

you need both in the script with setup first for it to work
