    FMP14/15 Print Script Bug

    alex_zueiv

      Product and version

      FileMaker Pro Advanced 14.0.5 & 15.0.3.305

       

      OS and version

      Mac OS X 10.11.6

       

      Description

       

      When you print a script that contains a very long, multiline calculation expression or comment, FMP does not print a number of the script steps located after it.

       

      The bug behaves that way on Mac OS only. It is also buggy on Windows, but a bit differently: it does not print the last part of a long, multiline block of text.

       

      How to replicate

      Try to print the test script in the file I've attached.

       

      Workaround

      Do not create any long, multiline stuff?..

          Thank you for your post.

           

          I am able to replicate the missing script steps issue under macOS Sierra 10.12.3.  I can confirm the issue does not exist under Windows.

           

          Regarding the second issue, I can get the last line of the multiline block of text to print under Windows, but I cannot get it to print under Mac.  What I did was modify your existing script by adding to the end of the calculation:

           

          // This is the last line to print.

           

          This prints fine under Windows, but fails under macOS Sierra 10.12.3.

           

          I have sent both issues to our Development and Testing departments for review.  When I receive any feedback, I will let you know.
