Why can't filemaker just default to the windows default?

Well it seems that the database files I have created locally, and then hosted on FileMaker Server 8 Advanced are using the printer settings I set when I first created the layout.

This is a problem because some people print to different networked printers. All clients have a series of network printers that are mapped on logon, and no local printers installed.

If someone changes the printer prior to printing it's fine for the day, or until they close it. Then it prints to the wrong printer again. What gives? Also a couple of my layouts were setup in 11x17 and no matter what I try it keeps defaulting back to 11x17 instead of letter.

Is there a way to have filemaker auto default to the windows printing preferences on the default printer? This would fix 90% of my problems and it would just require the user to change to landscape from portrait if they needed to.
