Title

Conditional Formatting Causes Printer to Freeze

Post

      

     I discovered and debugged a problem when printing a layout with conditional formatting after converting from 9 to 12. I discuss it on my blog:

     The problem arises from the use of a layout designed for monitor viewing being printed using the File:Print command and even in a button script.

     The use of conditionals in a 12 layout meant for printing seems to cause the printer, HP LaserJet 1022n, to go brain dead and stop printing.

     This freeze occurs in the latest shipping version in Windows 7 of 12 Pro Advanced, 12 Pro and 12 Go in IOS 6.
