myFMbutler releases PrinterSwitch 2.0 Manage printers in your FileMaker 11 solutions

GENT, Belgium -- March 16, 2010 -- myFMbutler today releases PrinterSwitch 2.0, a major upgrade to the plug-in for Windows and Mac OS X that allows you to easily control printer switching from within your FileMaker solutions.

About PrinterSwitch

myFMbutler PrinterSwitch is a plug-in for FileMaker Pro 11 (also 8.5 and up) for both Windows and Mac OS X 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 3rd party PDF printer driver. PrinterSwitch PDF's can thus be created in runtime solutions, which is not the case when using FileMaker's own built-in PDF functionality.

What's new in version 2.0?

  • Now fully compatible with FileMaker Pro 11
  • [Mac OS X only] Added Capture / Restore functionality for page orientation, paper size and paper source - this feature was already available in the Windows version
  • [Windows only] Integrated version 4 of the Amyuni PDF driver for compatibility with Windows 7 and improved compatibility with Windows Vista (both 32-bit and 64-bit versions)
  • Added PrSw_VersionAutoUpdate function for use with FMS Autoupdate
  • Changed installer so the plug-in is automatically installed in the FMS AutoUpdate location

System requirements

  • FileMaker Pro 11 (or 10/9/8.5)
