    Fit to Page Printing

    Can anyone help me figure out how to automatically get my reports to shrink to fit to one page wide? I currently have a PS printer that allows me to scale the reports down to say 75% so that they fit on one page but if someone doesn't have my type of printer what are they to do?

    Re: Fit to Page Printing

    Not much help but at least you can stop looking - there is no standard feature within FileMaker Pro to shrink to fit (such as in Excel). The only way I know of would be to advise the user how to make it fit - not pretty but it works.

    Re: Fit to Page Printing (Wide Reports)

    I know this is old, but here it is mid 2009, and I am trying to do the same thing.

    I have a wide booking grid that I post on my wall.

    My temporary solution is... I defined a paper size large enough to print it all on one page.

    Then my "Print" script does a page setup and selects the paper type as my large paper. I then print my grid to a PDF file, and open it on completion. Then I do a second Page Setup again, to change back to letter size.

    Once it opens in Preview, I just tell Preview to scale it to one or more pages, and print it. Not ideal, but until FMP adds a fit to page, or a scale, this will have to do for me. Page setup using scale does not give me the results I need.
