PrinterSwitch is a FileMaker Pro 14 plug-in for Windows and Mac that allows you to easily control printer switching from within your FileMaker solutions. Moreover, PrinterSwitch also allows automatic PDF creation from within FileMaker without the need for a third-party PDF printer driver. The name and destination of the PDF can both be set from within your solution.
