    PDF page size



      PDF page size


      We are using FMGO on ipads accessing a FM server hosted remotely by a 3rd party. 

      Everythings working great except when we use the "save a record as pdf" command, we cannot change the page size of the pdf file.  The pdf needs to be letter size but we end up with a 10.5 x 17 document.

      I've opened the DB through FM Advanced and in the page setup changed it to letter but it always reverts back to 10.5 x 17 when I reopen the file.

      Since FMGO doesn't support the page setup script has anyone found a work around or does anyone know how to make the default page size 8.5 x 11?

          I had the same problem but I was able to correct this by a little trial and error.  I used a print layout that is exactly 803 pixel wide and I increased the font size to 16.  I have a merge field that is 803 pixels wide on the layout.  When it prints I get a 8.5 by 11 page which looks like a 12 pt font on the page.  This page has about a quarter inch margin all around the page.  Hopefully this issue will be addressed in the next release of FM GO.

            Thank you for your post.

            Currently, FileMaker Go cannot specify a page size.  Our Development is aware of this issue.

            rgordon - Thank you for your efforts.  Hopefully, this will help others as they workaround the issue.

              Good to hear about the page size issue and the workaround.  Now, if they can get the page break issue resolved, I can restart my project.
