Before running a print task, you must ensure that you have a workflow that specifies that .log files can enter the workflow. You can add a condition allowing .log files to enter an existing workflow in the workflow's Properties dialog box, or you can create a workflow specifically for task log files.

A workflow you create for task log files requires only one initial state. All users should have permissions to that initial state.

Advanced Scripting Options Displays the Advanced Scripting Options dialog box, which lets you modify the script that controls the task, change the SolidWorks version used with the task, and change the task user interface type.
