      Filemaker Pro 12 Crashing on Print - Help!

      Post

           spec.
           Filemaker Pro 12

           Windows 7

           Lexmark Pro 901 printer

           2 databases with different layouts. Filemaker Pro crashes in both databases, different layouts, when trying to print either from script or using print from the menu. I can use a workaround by printing to pdf and then print locally but this is getting old fast! Hope there is someone that has found an answer to his issue.

            

           Thanks

               The printer is connected locally? Networked? No print spooler software or hardware?  Other apps print okay?

               This is the only printer available? If others are available, the same symptom?

               A new VERY simple database (with common fonts) also crashes when Print from Menu (with default settings) is used?

               If so, an uninstall of FMP and reinstall would be a good step.

                 In addition to DavidAnders excellent advice, you might want to check with Lexmark's website and make sure that you have downloaded and installed the most recent device driver for your printer. That's a long shot, but a cheap thing to try to resolve the issue.
