    PageSetup scale % = % of script PDF'd

    DavidMatson

      Summary

      PageSetup scale % = % of script PDF'd

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      13 Advanced

      Operating system version

      Mac 10.9.5

      Description of the issue

      The scale in PageSetup effects how much of a script is PDF'd, so if 50% is selected then only 50% of a script is PDF.  For example, I have a script that according to GitHub is 114 lines long.  But, when scaled to 50% only 51 lines of the script are PDF'd by FileMaker 13.  When I set the scale to 100%, the FM13 PDFs all 114 lines of this script.

      I share PDFs of my scripts on GitHub and with FM10 you could shrink the page scale and the whole script would print, reducing the number of non-script page footers. 

      Cheers,

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      1. Set PageSetup Scale to less than 50%
      2. Open any script.
      3. Select File > Print
      4. PDF script.
      5. FileMaker 13 will only print 50% of the script. 

      If the scale is set to 10% then even less of the script is printed.

      Expected result

      All lines of a script are PDF'd.

      Actual result

      Only a percentage of the scripts lines are PDF'd that are actually less than the reduced scale for the page.

      Workaround

      1. Set PageSetup scale to 100%.
      2. Create 10000 inch custom page length. 

      This will PDF even long scripts without inserting any footers.

          Thank you for your post.

          I am able to replicate the issue under Mac OS X 10.10.2 and Mac OS X 10.9.5.  Currently, I do not have access to a Windows machine, so I could not test.

          Regardless, I have sent your post along with my findings to our Development and Testing departments for review.  When I receive any feedback, I will let you know.
