    Print Setup Scaling doesn't work



      Print Setup Scaling doesn't work


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      Windows XP Pro and others

      Description of the issue

      The print scaling doesn't work. We have a report set to print at 95%. The page preview doesn't scale as it should. If I set the scale to 50% I would expect the page preview to display a small version of the printable layout, it still displays the same as before.

      This was first noticed when the print margins were set under Layout Options>Printing.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      1) Create a layout.
      2) Change the scale, in the Print Setup>Effects, to 50%.
      3) Enter Preview Mode.

      Expected result

      I would expect the layout to be scaled to 50% in preview mode.

      Actual result

      The layout previews as if the scale was 100%.

      Configuration information

      I have tried several print drivers on the network. All of the drivers are HP.


      Resize the layout to fit. NOT A GOOD SOLUTION. We have more than 500 layouts affected.
