Our research project has progressed to the point that we need to print part of all of our findings. We are using FMv13. and OS 10.10 recently upgraded. The printer is duplex.

Depending on the use, sometimes we need part of the data Snd in that case the data fills two pages. The printer prints front/back then goes to the next record and sheet. No problem. Perfect in fact.

Sometimes we need a full data dump printed which requires 4 sides or both sides of two sheets. I can't figure out how to get FileMaker Pro setup to do this.

Put another way:

Record A Sheet 1 front

Record A Sbeet 2 back

Record A Sheet 3 front

Record A Sheet 4 back

Record B Sheet ( front

.

.

.

This is probably dead simple? (If it matters, sheets 2, 3, 4 are all in tabs; the tab pane occupies the entire Body).

Thanks.

well it depends on how things are structured - you may need to use some Virtual List Technique to print from

that so that you can insert blank (record/page) on the even # page so that the subsequent record prints on the desired page which an odd numbered page.

 

Are these pages you are printing a FORM view or a List view?

Filemaker doesn't know about sides, only pages. What you're saying is that you need four pages per record - and if that's the case, you need a layout that's four pages tall.

 

Four pages seems like an awful lot for a single record - so perhaps you may want to review your overall data structure.
