Can you possible provide some guidance. We have just upgraded a file from FileMaker 9 to FileMaker 12 both using PrinterSwitch. The solution currently directs to three separate printers two of which operate perfectly as previous. The exception to this is an Epson FX-890 printer with a Fan Fold feed. Previously when printing it would print correctly a single page whereas now it feeds a blank page additionally.
We have checked the layout parameters and even reduced the layout size significantly to force to a single page, yet it still feed two pages.
Any guidance or assistance would be very welcome.

    Hi Gwyn,

    I'm sorry to hear that you have this issue.
    What happens when you print the layout without using PrinterSwitch?

    Kind regards,

    Hi Jasper,

    Thank you for your response. In fact I have found a resolution to this issue today. By amending the print resolution on the printer and reapplying the settings has resolved the issue. Not bad for a creaky old dot -matrix printer that had drivers dating to 2003!!

    For your info the issue was the same when printing without PrinterSwitch too.

    Kind regards,
