There is a long delay while print via PrinterSwitch plugin, where as filemaker normal printing not taking time to print the same layout.

I debugged and found in

PrSw_PrintSetup( "reset" ) and PrSw_SelectPrinter ( $_PrSw_GetPrinterNumber )

these 2 steps was taking a long time.

In our application we support 18 different printers to print customer invoice, kintchen copy, reports etc.. so we always reset printer config via a single script.

Please advice to overcome from this delay.

    Hi Jaydeep,

    Which version of PrinterSwitch are you using?
    And do you have the problem with every printer? Or only with some of the printers?

    Kind regards,
