    HP Printing error "error drawing page 1"



      HP Printing error "error drawing page 1"


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      OS 10.6.4

      Description of the issue

      HP P3005 Laser Jet printer will print all of the layouts in my Filemaker file ... but one.  It gives "error drawing page 1".

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      I created a new layout, pulling the fields, but got the same result - no printout.

      I've started recreating the entire file, but I'll have 6 pages of field definitions to re-enter.  I'm hoping this is not necessary - but so far so good.  So far, the desired layout is printing - but I've only entered 11 field definitions.

      Expected result

      Printed pages.

      Actual result

      No printer output.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      error drawing page 1

          Have you tried recovering the file? (The recover report might tell you what's damaged and you might not have to rebuild the entire file, you might be able to just delete a few layouts or tables and rebuild them.)

          Have you tried deleting one object at a time from the problem layout to see if one specific layout object is the cause?

          This looks like another case where saving multiple backup copies might have saved you some work rebuilding the file.
