Description Printing, previewing, and using the Print Setup script step on a layout containing a web viewer will cause the web viewer content to disappear.

 

How to replicate Create a web viewer who's content is set by using the calculation starting with "data:text/html," followed by some HTML. This will not display when printing, previewing, and using the Print Setup script step. However a URL such as "https://www.google.com/" will.  According  to this http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/6087/kw/web%20viewer%20print knowledge base article it should be displaying.

 

"The state of web viewers is also maintained when switching from Browse mode to Preview mode and back to Browse mode, and the state is maintained when printing."

 

 

Workaround None known.
