Product and version: FileMaker Pro Advanced

OS and version: macOS 10.12

Browser and version: n/a

Hardware: Mac mini (Late 2012)


Description: When attempting to change the scale in the Print Setup Dialog box (e.g. change the preset 68% to 90%), this error message is displayed:

"The value in the "Scale" field is out of range.

Resetting to previous value…


This did not occur in prior versions/operating systems


How to replicate:  Select a PDF to print.  Choose "Page Setup…" from the File menu.  Change the "Scale" value.  Press the tab key.

Workaround:  Click the OK button in the Error dialog box.  The value entered is then accepted (not reset as indicated).


Granted, this is a relatively minor annoyance.  Since there are several reports of problems associated with the print/save dialog, you might as well fix this at the same time.
