PDF Printing problems.


FileMaker Pro


FM 12 Advanced Rev 3

Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

The PDF print driver does NOT work. Cannot scale to fit both in creating a PDF from a record or to the printer itself. This was NOT a problem with FM 11. Nor is it a problem with FM 12 on iPad and Mac. FIX THIS NOW!!! As it stands, my db is useless as PDFs are used as backup and as data sent to outside parties. This has been a problem for over a year. This is not acceptable!!!

Steps to reproduce the problem

Print to pdf, save current record as PDF.

Expected result

The file should scale to fit both for PDF output and for print. The prompt shows a scaling option but nothing happens. This is a FM problem with Win 7.

Actual result

The file does not scale, the PDF is broken up into two pages.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No error message.

Configuration information

Standard install into Win 7. Everything else works without issue save for this.
