Hello Maria and Everyone!
That is the strangest thing I have ever heard...that a print command  
inside a piece of software, would make the entire computer re-boot...I  
didn't know that was possible!

So you could "print to PDF" instead, and then open the PDF document in  
Acrobat Reader, and print from Acrobat Reader....

That is what I do anyway...I always make a PDF of the finished  
document in DocumentMaker...

However, in the Runtime version of DocumentMaker, which you are using,  
the PDF feature only works for one page at a time I believe...which  
means that you then need to put the PDF document together with other  
software, such as Acrobat Professional or other free software on the  

In the version of DocumentMaker that requires FileMaker Pro, the  
entire PDF is put together for you automatically...

So anyway...try printing one page to PDF and then opening Acrobat  
Reader and printing that page...I hope your computer doesn't re-boot  
printing a PDF!

Val ;-)
