Does your script have a "Page Setup" function included, with "restore"
option selected? If so, make yourself a small found set and manually
print them (from the layout you want your script to use). During manual
printing, your print window should give you an option to print "records
being browsed" as opposed to a script. Make sure this is selected. I
don't know how this appears in OS X, but in the older Mac OS using the
LaserWriter 8 driver, there is a set of print option menus, one of which
is "Filemaker." Inside the Filemaker sub-menu are the above-mentioned
Once your manual print test has worked successfully, open the offending
script in Scriptmaker, then close it. You should get a dialog box asking
if you wish to keep or replace your page setup. Choose "replace," and
everything should work.
But if you do *not* have a Page Setup function in the script, then
something else is going on. Also, I'm not absolutely positive that the
Page Setup function controls Filemaker print options under OS X. I use it
primarily to memorize the page orientation under OS 9.2.2. I've been
somewhat frustrated by the types of page setups that Page Setup will
remember, and aspects it won't. I presume that all this is quite
different under OS X.
But in general a long-standing irritation is that every time I print a
script, the next manual print command will print a script unless I
remember to tell it to print records being browsed. I wish it would
always default to records being browsed instead of whichever choice you
last made. Another choice that can mess you up is to print just the
active record. You can get reports with twenty lines showing onscreen,
and only one line on thje print out.
