PrinterSwitch from myFMbutler is one of those plugins which just does exactly what it says on the tin! It allows you to switch printers from with FileMaker and it does it well!

It can also be used to workaround the FileMaker runtime’s limitation of not being able to output to PDF files, as it comes with a virtual PDF printer which you can use to dynamically create PDFs from FileMaker output.


  • switch printers on the fly from within your FileMaker application.
  • send dynamic FileMaker output to PDF, using the filename and location of your choice.
  • select any printer driver that is installed on your system.
  • captures printer settings like page orientation, paper size etc. and restores them at the time of printing.

A single user license costs $80, but if you have ever been frustrated by multiple printer issues in FileMaker, this will most likely seem a very reasonable price. A developer license supporting an unlimited number of applications with each upto 25 users is also available for $825.
