FileMaker prints only blank pages.


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OS X  10.6.4

Description of the issue

MacBook Pro (identical problem on both three year old machine that used to print correctly and currently has 10.0.v3 update, and a brand new machine with newly installed Filemaker, 10.0.v1)
Mac OS X 10.6.4
Filemaker Pro 10

> After a two month trip without a printer and installing the latest Mac operating system, my Filemaker program stopped printing records.
> In Filemaker, when a record is displayed: the record is show correctly; is show correctly in “preview” mode; when “print” is selected the screen still is correct - but when “preview” in the print window is selected a blank screen appears using the preview application; if printing is continued from any location - a blank page is printed.
> The Preview application works normally in all other applications.
> The HP Laserjet 1022 prints correctly from all other applications.

> I have searched the Forum and Help and followed (as best I can) suggestions on other printing problems.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Any and all printing from FileMaker results in a blank page.
To the best of my knowledge, I have searched all possible settings that might help.


Make a copy of the screen - an unsatisfactory path.
