Script print issue
FMP Server 11
Operating system version
XP and Windows 7
Description of the issue
When I create a script to run on a file being served through FMP Server it does not properly reset the printer set up at each station. The results are mixed depending upon what the printer defaults are at each station.It appears as if the script step for printer, defaults to the current print variables set on the station performing the script instead of resetting the printer defaults set up when the script was created. I have tried creating separate scripts steps and calling up those scrips within a script as well as setting up a redundent printer set up to no avail. Is this a limitation in Filemaker? Or is thier some specific way to do this that will overide the default printer set up at each station
Steps to reproduce the problem
Create a script and include a "printer set up" "restore the printer set up" then print
If the printer set up was "portrait", "2 copies", "staple left corner", "Collated" that is what I expect to get on any station that calls that script.
If the default printer set up was "landscape" on the station that called the script it does not print "portrait". If the default set up was "3 hole punch duplex" then I may very well get that also. Even though it is not in my print set up
