FileMaker Printing and Windows

Why does FileMaker have so many problems with printing on Windows? Their WYSIWYG editor and windows don't play well. You rarely get on the printer what you see on the screen. From version to version of FileMaker you have to adjust ever so slightly the objects on the layout so they don't get truncated off. I just don't get why they can't make printing in windows better. They've touted WYSIWYG for years, but its been nothing but problems for years. It works fine on a Mac, but never a PC.

 

Sorry, my frustration on this has to do with FileMaker and Windows 10 and a 4 inch printer. It only prints half the page unless you go into print setup, select a full size printer, and then print to the 4 inch printer. Yet every other program on windows prints with absolutely zero problems. I'm working up an issue report, but I'm still doing some testing so I can provide them with highly detailed information. Even going so far as to try a different 4 inch printer that I have to find.

 

So any tips you may have would be appreciated!
