Specifying a default printer and paper options (Windows)
FileMaker Pro initially uses the Windows default printer and paper options as its default, but you can specify a different default printer and paper options to be used when you print in FileMaker Pro. The Windows default printer and the FileMaker Pro default printer are independent. If you change one default, it doesn’t affect the other.
The default printer that you choose for FileMaker Pro is an application setting; all files that you print with FileMaker Pro will print to this printer unless you choose a different one.
The paper and orientation options that you choose are file-specific settings. You can choose different paper and orientation options for each FileMaker Pro file.
To specify a default printer and paper options:
With a database file open, choose File menu > Print Setup.
In Preview mode, you can also click Print Setup in the status toolbar.
The Print Setup dialog box appears.
The printer you choose and its properties becomes the default printer for FileMaker Pro.
These paper and orientation options will be saved with the current file and will be used when you print any layout in this file.
