You still did not solve this problem after all those years though other plugin builders did. I want to use this function with the MyFMButler PrinterSwitch license I bought. Please help!


 I’m using the PrSw_SetPrintCopies function, but only one copy is printed regardless of the value I select (Windows)

We have found this is a FileMaker bug, that you will sometimes run into, even without PrinterSwitch installed.

With some printer drivers, this will work correctly, but with many other drivers, the PrSw_SetPrintCopies function will only work if you use the PrSw_SetPrintCollate function at the same time.

    HI Louk,

    We are aware of the problem.
    The best solution is to loop over the print step so you get the right amount of copies. This is also the most reliable way across different platforms.

    Kind regards,
