Hello All!


I develop with and have been using FileMaker for several years now, and always find this forum super helpful and informative, so thank you all! Recently, however, I had a customer request that I could not find a definitive answer to on my own, or here in the community forums so I thought I'd simply ask the intelligent collective here at large.


Here is the customer request:

Can you hide the FileMaker Pro print options that appear in the regular computer print window?

I know that we can simply use the print script step to completely omit this window, but this particular client wants their users to be able to access the majority of print options (like being able to select a printer, choose the number of copies etc) but is afraid some people will be confused or otherwise mess-with these FileMaker specific printing options.


I have a strong suspicion that this is simply not possible (or at least not without significant workarounds of some kind) but I thought I'd ask to see what everyone else thought.
