If I print a report I would like to print page 1 to drawer 1 and then page and further to drawer 2.
Can anybody tell me how to make the script ?
Some printers have that capability built into their print drivers, so you may be able to choose that functionality in the Page Setup and Print script steps by just setting and saving those settings in the corresponding script step.
If that is not possible, then your script could have 2 Print script steps, the first prints Page 1 to 1 with Tray 1 specified and saved within that script step, and the other would Print the pages From 2 to - , using Tray 2. Some systems you may leave the To blank, others you may insert a dash, meaning "and beyond," in order to print however many pages there happen to be.
Give that a shot!
in a single printer environment, one can create two print jobs/scripts
- the first prints page1 to drawer 1
- the second prints page 2...9999 to drawer 2
both scripts with their own printer settings, should be possible to combine both jobs into one script. We have separate scripts for them.
If there are multiple printers/users, it can become tricky. Then, there is a Plugin available from 2emPower that can address every single option of a printer
Thanks, I think I got it.
Make sure that the PlugIn you choose is 64-bit ready to work with FMP14 64-bit mode.

is 64-bit ready.
We're still waiting for MyFMButtler for 64-bit update!
