Moving from FM8.5 to FM10, we were surprised by this new "feature"
Our work-around is to continue defining our print scripts with FM8.5, so that FM10 will use the Default Printer
Any feedback from FileMaker would be appreciated. Any chance this will be "fixed" ? is it the same in FM11 ?
Thank you for your post.
Users wanted to specify specific printers instead of the default printer, so it was put into the Print Options of FileMaker Pro 10, To get around this, create a non-existent printer and assign print options to that printer. The user will not see that printer when they print, and therefore print to the default printer.
This is the same behavior in FileMaker Pro 11.
I encourage you to enter this suggestion into our Feature Requests web form at:
Although I could copy your post and paste it into the web form, there are some questions asked that only you can answer.
i see this post is a couple of years old, but I am looking for the same solution. Is there any update on how to select Print restore without specifying the printer?
