that FM Pro "remembers" the last set of printer settings and keeps them.
You don't mention if you are all sharing a DataBase, I assume you are as this would be more logical, or if the FMP database use are using has any scripting added to it.
Again, my assumption is that it has. If the printing function is controlled by a script, hit the button and off it goes, the Duplex function has somehow become part of the settings that the script draws on.
Part of the script has an option, a switch, that tells FMP to not ask for settings but to use the last ones applied before the switch was checked.
Go to the printing script, turn off this option and FMP will ask for printer settings each time you print.
As soon as you have go rid of the Duplex function, turn the switch back on and all should be well.
Hope this helps
At our small museum we're running FileMaker Pro 6.0.4 on our G4 Macs, and our single Wallstreet G3 PowerBook, each with OS 10.4.11 (except the PB), networked with an HP 2200D printer.
Our problem is that the FM printing prefs seem stuck on duplex print mode. I've shut off two-sided printing everywhere I can think of in the print dialog box, but it just keeps doing it, which is a pain in the neck. Our current work-around is to open the bypass door when printing a run of accession sheets, which mechanically interrupts the duplexer.
The single side option works with all the other programs we use, as does the duplex option. It's only FM that won't quit duplexing.
Is there a print pref file for FM that I can trash or something to get the darned thing working right?
