Filemaker ver? OS ver?
If you only print to one printer, this problem does not come up.
If you print to two printers, the printer setup is temporary. Do Page Setup, print a test and then create a script to capture the settings.
How do I specify printer and paper options when printing from FileMaker Pro?
This is a problem for many, there are plugins to manage printing.
I'm using a Windows PC so there is no Page Setup only Printer Setup (which you said is temporary).
Any other ideas?
I suggest following David's advice. Print Setup is the windows equivalent of the Page Setup option found on Macs. The key is that this setting is global to your entire file so a change made on any layout affects the setup for all layouts.
You can, however, use scripting to control what set up is specified for each layout and that's what he is suggesting here.
I understand but as i noted in my origonal post, i have tried a script as well.
I have tried making 2 scripts and putting them as script triggers on 2 different layouts.
The first script i made for a regular letter page print setup: regular letter size printer: specificed the printer
Then i made a second script to print setup: 3x4" label printer: specisiced the label printer.
But when i made the second script, it automatically changed the print setup that i specificed on the first script i made to the label printer has well.
