    Unable to print date field



      Unable to print date field


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      OS X 10.8.5

      Description of the issue

      Starting with blank layout format - set up a number of fields in document setting.  All field - including date fields - show in browse mode - but in preview mode - date fields will not show & will not print.  I've checked to be sure that field is large enough to hold date - no field overlaps - field in to front - not behind anything else

               Hi Alex,

               Are you sure the preview mode is also concerned ? Because the "classic" problem here, is when you print, the "Print : Blank records…" is enabled on the Print dialog box.

               Also did you check the 'Do not print the selected objects' option ?

               To check this, please choose the following menu command : Format > Set Sliding/Printing, just after selecting the concerned objects.

               Sorry if my guess are not relevant...

               Bye, Fred

                 A few other things to check:

                 Make sure that this happens even if you create a brand new, small test file to rule out any possible issue with your file.

                 Try changing the font to see if this happens with all fonts, just one, or a group of specific fonts.
