I’m printing existing pdfs using the method:
Begin text block
Text: tell application "Preview" (Carriage return)
Text: activate (Carriage return)
Text: print (POSIX file "[lFilePath]") (Carriage return)
Text: close (POSIX file "[lFilePath]") (Carriage return)
Text: quit (Carriage return)
Text: end tell (Carriage return)
End text block
Get text block lScriptText
The file does print but is clipped because of margins being too big. The pdf’s margins are not respected.
When I double-click on the pdf, it opens in Preview and prints with much smaller margins so it is not clipped. The pdf’s margin settings are respected.
Is there a better way?
I have tried the AppleScript above but using PDFpen, which will print the pdf correctly, but then hang the Omnis method until I manually quit PDFpen.
