FileMaker 15 and older on macOS Sierra show a problem with printing.
If you once print to PDF, the print dialog in FileMaker will remember the PDF printing and even print to PDF if no PDF printing is selected.

If you set this option to 1, the plugin will reset the print destination to the printer before the dialog is shown or other options are applied.

Set Variable [$r; Value: MBS( "PrintDialog.Install" ) ]
