      PDF's created in FMP12 will not print. Did work in FMP11

      Post

           Hi, I had a .fp7 file running in FMP11, scripted several PDFs to disc. Now, upgraded to FMP12 and FMS12.

           Filemaker Server is now hosting the file. FMP12 mac, is client.

           When running the same script, now changed for local desktop as path, I get all the PDF's but the will not print. When trying to print it to a PS file (just for test) it returns "Warning: Postscript error. No PDF file produced"  isn't this strange ???

           Please help!

               I have a Mac and FMP11 and 12.  Printing from FMP for a single page PDF using a Layout works...

               But....

               It is never full size from print margin reduction and not as crisp as would be normally.

               You can Export the PDF from a container and open the export with Adobe or Mac Preview from the copy of the Exported file.

               The use would  then "print' using say... Preview.

               I have scripted this with a dialog instructing them how to print.

               Plus I create a temporary folder on the Server for the exported file so i can periodically delete these "Temporary Print Exports"

               You get full page and crisp outputs from the PDF applications.
