Allow Printing in Other Privileges is checked but Print is still greyed out in drop down list

Description of the issue

FileMaker Product(s) involved:  FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Pro Advanced 10.0v1 Operating System(s) involved:  Mac OS X v10.5.3 Detailed description of the issue:I have a privilege set where Available Menu Commands is set to "Editing Only" and the Allow Printing box checked.  However on the toolbar "Print" is greyed out.  I am unable to print with this privilege set.  It seems that having the Allow Printingbox checked no matter what the other privileges are set to should allow printing. Exact steps to reproduce the issue:Go to File - Manage - Accounts & PrivilegesSelect a Privilege set and click EditUnder Data Access and Design:  Records:  Create, Edit and Delete in All tables  Layouts:  All view Only  Value Lists:  All Modifiable  Scripts:  All Executable OnlyExtended Privileges - Check box for "Access via Filemaker Network"Under Other Priviliges:  Check box for Allow Printing  Check box for Allow Exporting  Check box for Allow user to override data validation warnings  Check box for Disconnect user from Filemaker server when idleSet Available Menu Commands to "Editing Only" Expected Result:Print should be an option on the menu bar since "Allow Printing" was checked. Actual Result:Print is greyed out on the tool bar and the command is unaccessible Exact text of any error message(s) that appeared:  NAAny additional configuration information/troubleshooting that is relevant to the issue: NAAny workarounds that you have found:  Create a button script for printing on each layout which is a pain when you have multiple layouts.
