Hello,

The "Print Document" activity requires you to enter the path and file name.

I suggest to create an action/activity to send a text directly to the printer, without the need specify a file.

Thanks

Hi Herminio,

You can set a variable witht he path & filename and reference that variable within the action.

Will that work for you?

Hi Ricardo,

Perhaps I was not clear.

I want to print some text without being obliged to create a file or having to open another program (eg Notepad.exe), and enter text and send it to the printer.
