Chapter 15. Printing

In general, printing in FileMaker is not too different from printing in your other applications. But there are a few twists worth considering, so read on.

To select a printer:

  • Unless you change it, FileMaker will use your regular printer and its default settings. If you want to use a different printer for FileMaker files than your regular printer, do this:

    In Windows, choose File > Print Setup (Figure 15.1). When the Print Setup dialog box appears, select a new printer with the pop-up menu (Figure 15.2). Make sure your page margins are correct by checking the Paper and Orientation panels at the bottom of the dialog box. When you're done, click OK.

    Figure 15.1. To change your printer, choose File > Print Setup.

    Figure 15.2. The pop-up menu within the Print Setup dialog box lets you select a new printer.

    On the Mac, select Chooser from the Apple menu. When the Chooser dialog box appears, make your new selection (Figure 15.3). Click the close box in the upper-left corner of the title bar.
