      How to get default Page Setup to stick in FM 12

      Post


           Hello - In FM12 -    I need to get certain files and certain layouts within those files to have default Page Setup percentages.

           Everytime I close and re-open these files the Page Setup goes back to a number I can't use.

           Any ideas?

            

            

           Thank you.

               I assume you are talking about the zoom percentages.  You need to use script triggers. You can use OnLayoutEnter and then have a script to set the zoom level for that layout.  Set Zoom Level [Lock; 25%....400% /Zoom In/Zoom Out]

               Lock prohibits the user from making changes to the zoom level.  

               Lookup Zoom in filemaker help.

                 From the term "page setup" I'm guessing that you are using a Mac where you have a percentage setting possible that does not have a Windows equivalent.

                 I don't know for sure that this will work, but you can try scripting this by putting the page setup step in a script and specifying the percentages there. You'd then run this script to both set the percentages and print from your layout.
