      Filemaker printing garbage with dot-matrix printer

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Description of the issue

      Printing anything to a dot-matrix printer with Filemaker produces pages of garbage text. Using any other application to print using the same dot-matrix printer works perfectly fine. Printing the same reports using laser printers works fine also.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Create any layout or report to print from Filemaker. When report is printed, garbage text is printed instead of the information on the layout.

      Expected result

      As per design of the print layout.

      Actual result

      Garbage text.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      None.

      Configuration information

      MacBook Pro 15"
      2.3GHz Intel Core i7
      16GM RAM
      Mac OS X 10.10.2

      Workaround

      None
