When printing a record out of filemaker it typically would be a 500k file sent to a print spooler. In my FMP12 solution it is now sending 75mb files to the print spooler. This is slowing down printing drastically. Any thoughts?
I am also having this problem. Using an identical single page print job, my inkjet printer driver spools the file to 5.80 MB and prints at normal speed but that same file spools at 38.9 MB on my xerox solid ink printer. I remember having a problem like this a couple FM versions ago and it required an updated driver from the printer company.
Hoping someone knows how to solve this because my FM docs that normally print at 40 pages per minute on FM 11 are now printing at 1 page every 4 minutes with FM 12.
I am going to check the print drivers and Ill let you know from there if it fixes my problem. I contacted File Maker today and they could not replicate the same problem.
Make sure your using PCL5 print drivers and not PCL6. That was my problem.
I am having the same issue and found that it is caused by images on the document. I have invoices and jobsheets with company logo 35k file
Whether it is an image pasted or a container field it changes my 67k file to a 3MB file
I have posted another discussion asking how 67k + 35k = 3MB
Have you resolved your issue?
My issue was resolved by changing my print driver from pcl6 to pcl5
Cannot get pcl5 driver for the particular Sharp Machine that I have tried PostScript - still no good
