Printing Records Larger Than Page Setup Size
Posted on 2008-10-16
I have designed a Joke Database transformed from the Recipes Starter Solution in FileMaker Pro. I have a Form View, List View, Information Layout and Joke Card layout. The Joke Card layout is where I have set up the print because it is made up of the Text Field & ID number of the joke. The layout is setup so that the printable area is filled with the Joke (Test Field) and just the top line has the ID Number (Serial Number). I have formatted the Text in the layout for my boss who wants a larger font.
My dilemma is this, the jokes, or records are not all the same Text length. The requirement is to print them out on A6 Card Stock (Roughly 4x6)in landscape mode. The printer drivers are fine with the layout and paper size; however, some of the jokes take up to 6 pages when I export the text to an MS Word template setup to print these larger records. The way things now work is only the first page will print on any joke/record from FileMaker Pro.
Is there a way for FileMaker Pro to print the entire contents of text box onto multiple 4x6 cards without having to export the contents to a TXT file and print outside in MS Word or some other program?
