Description: This video provides an overview of the Change Printer Plug-in.


Introducing the change printer plug-in for FileMaker. This plug-in allows you to automatically change printers within your FileMaker scripts. Let’s discuss a few of the benefits of using the Change Printer Plug in. First, we can gather a list of all printers connected to a user’s computer and store them in FileMaker for future reference. Next, we can automatically switch printers in FileMaker with or without user interaction. Your users can save time and frustration by not having to search for particular printers based on what they are printing.


Other benefits include:

  • Getting or setting the system default printer.
  • On Windows you can also allow the print dialog to be displayed for a desired number of milliseconds.


This is just a small sampling of what is possible with this plug-in. I encourage you to explore this website, review the videos and documentation, Download a demo, and contact us via e-mail or phone or browse our forum if you have any additional questions.  We hope you enjoy automating the print changing process in FileMaker.
