      Summary

      Printing FileMaker 9 IWP

      Description of the issue

      In order to get an IWP page to print properly (size wise) in Firefox, you need to do a Page Setup at 115%.  When you print a multipage document it will only print the first page.  This is not true in IE or Safari.  They both give you a multipage printout.  However, they are harder to setup.   I also posted this on the Firefox site.  They asked me to run Validate on the page.  It reported 7 errors!  Either FileMaker is not generating the right HTML markers or Firefox cannot interpret something that FileMaker is sending.  It needs to get fixed.  I had an interesting discussion about this with your support people and they saw the same thing.  I really don't want to be back 10 years where we had to test every browser to see if the page displayed properly - let alone printed properly!

          Thank you for your post.

           

          Yes, I can confirm this is a problem with FileMaker Pro 9 and FileMaker Pro 10, and I have sent the information to our Developers and Software Quality Assurance (Testing) departments for review.  In the mean time, multi-page layouts will need to be printed from a browser other than Firefox.

           

          When more information becomes available, I will post here.
