Fuzzy Printing Web Veiwers


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version


Description of the issue

Text rendered in web veiwers does not print well, and looks pixelated on the printed page.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Display a page with text in a web viewer on a filemaker layout. Print the page and inspect results, as compared to native text on a layout.

Expected result

Fonts should appear smooth as when printed from a browser.

Actual result

Fonts appear to have been rasterized at screen resolution and then print to printer. Screen resolution is much much lower than print resolution, so unusable in printed letters and reports.


Avoid using web viewers on print layouts.
