Can't Change Printer Options

Postby Adrian Jones » Thu Mar 24, 2016 3:14 pm

Working on a DfW 6.52 app.

In designer view, whenever I go to print options, the app crashes. Doesn't matter what type of document.

Anyone remember anything odd in this area?

Cheers, Adrian

Win7 ?
What's the default printer?
Have you tried changing the default printer to Generic Text to see if this still happens.

I do recall seeing this, and have seen it in Ffenics, if the default printer was something "different". I use to use PDF Factory as my default printer when I wasn't on a network so that print jobs would still run. But neither DfW nor Ff were happy with that as a default printer and might hang up.

Hi Graham,

That was spot on!

this is working on a virtual server set up by a third party, and I guess they didn't set any default printers for the workstation.

I do hope I can persuade this customer to move to Ff. There's a lot of stuff about DfW 6 that I've forgotten!

Cheers, Adrian
