Summary

Printing Labels from FM database to Brother QL-700 with a script

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

FileMaker 12.0v4

Operating system version

OS X 10.8.4

Description of the issue

I've been trying to find a way to print from a FileMaker database to our new Brother label printer.  There are no matching presets for the Brother labels in the FileMaker program (at least for Mac) and I cannot get a manual label to print, no matter how I mess with the dimensions and margins, position, etc.

I'm thinking I may have to write a script to have FileMaker open P-touch (the Brother editor program) from individual records, but I am completely inexperienced with this. Our IT person is very busy right now, and I hate trouble her.

Has anyone done this? If so, would you be so kind as to share your process and success?

Thank you!
