Slow printing


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

Since upgrading to version 11, printing has been excessively slow.  With version 8(Windows 7), printing was efficient.  It makes no difference whether there is a huge database or not.  Calculations, scripts, find, sort etc. are instantaneous, so this issue with printing is very frustrating. This happens every time, whether one is printing one record or many.  The programme hangs for about 30 seconds before the printer is activated.

Steps to reproduce the problem

This happens with every print job.

Expected result

Instantaneous reaction from the printer.

Actual result

It takes about 30 seconds before data is sent to the printer.

Configuration information

Printer is an Epson Aculaser Colour - C2800 - but I don't think this is an issue with the printer, as it is fine with every other programme.  I have also noted that many others have been having similar problems.
