Hi, Jakob: I have a few guesses that might help track down the problem:
* Set Distiller to check the watched folder at greater intervals, to give more time for the .ps files to be written completely. (Just a hunch.) * Use DoBatch to import, to each .fm file, a printfile whose settings reassert the print last page first OFF option.
