Interesting, because it does work on a Mac with OS 10.15.5 (i.e. Catalina) using the print button in the way upper left as well as using the print button above the report window.

Try sending an email directly to Brad. I use Catalina and had no problem upgrading the new version.

Hi,
  I think I've found the source of the problem - when "Print to browser" is checked it is not adding the "file://" extension before the file name.

  I've corrected this in the latest build but have a few more bugs to clean up before I release it.  It will be in build 3.1.7 hopefully late this week.

Thanks,
Brad
