Unable to create different sized layouts


FileMaker Pro


FMP v11

Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

This is my second time creating this database, since the first one crashed and was critically damaged and unable to be recovered.

In both, I created a separate layout in order to show just an image of the barcode associated with a record. As part of a script, the Form View layout changes to the Barcode layout, the barcode is printed on a barcode printer, then the layout goes back to the original Form View. The first time I created the database there were no issues. However, now the preview size for the Barcode layout (very small) is also carried over to all of the other layouts. Form View is now an inch by less than three.

If I make the Barcode layout size the size of the Form View should be, the barcode will not print properly. This did not happen when the database was first created.

What am I doing wrong and how can I correct this?
