Hello,

I have a FM file that stopped printing or I should say printing just blank. All other FM files seem to be unaffected.

The "Preview" button in the print dialog (not the preview mode) turns up a blank page.

Does anyone have an idea of what might be going on?

Thank you very much.

Thanks LaRetta,

Are you talking about the preview mode?

What I was talking about was the preview button in the print dialog. I don't know if this is Mac specific or specific to my printer driver (epson stylus photo 820) though.

Thanks again,

Thanks Jeff,

Sorry if I wasn't clear in my initial posting. Yes, it does show up in preview "mode" as in command-U.

The only reason I brought up the topic of the preview "button" in the print dialog -- the dialog that comes up upon pressing command-P -- was because this seemed to be related to the problem where this file would not print.

Thanks again,

Hipsig

If I'm understanding you correctly, a page shows in FileMakers' Preview Mode, but not in Operating System 10.4.x Preview. Don't know if any of this applies, but it might help.

How many pages are in FM's Preview?

Do you have Margins showing?

if more than one, how many pages are you there. Do they match the number of the found set in the rolodex?

Do you have Current Record, or Records being reviewed [color:blue]selected.

How many pages show in OS X Preview? none same as Rolodex?

Is there a printer in the OS Print dialog box selected?

HTH

Thanks a bunch Lee.

I went through you questions and found that I had "current record" selected in the print dialog under the FM settings. I reset this to "found records" (or whatever it is in English because I use a Japanese version) and all is OK now.

Thanks again for you suggestions.
