    within individual layouts, is there a way to set a default page setup?


    to illustrate:

    i have 2 layouts, one i need to print out 8.5" wide, 11" tall.

    the other layout i need 11" wide, 8.5" tall.

    every time i go back and forth between printing in each layout, if i forget to fix the page setup, i end up wasting paper.

    i've looked all the places i can think of, but nothing yet that i have tried will default the page setup in the way i need it.

    thanks!

    jkaz,

    You don't mention what version of filemaker you're using, but I would accomplish this with a script.

    I've got FM7Dev and just wrote two quick scripts for printing: one called "Print Large", the other called "Print Small."

    "Print Large" uses 13x19" paper, at 100% in landscape.
    "Print Small" uses 8.5x11" paper, at 50%, in portrait.

    Go to ScriptMaker and view the list of "Files" script steps. The applicable steps are "Print Setup" and "Print".

    Best,
    Anton
