Issue Details

I am using the Easy Print.vi to print my Front Panel to a printer. Even though the VI is only called once, the Front Panel prints twice. 

Solution

First, run the program with Highlight Execution turned on to ensure Easy Print.vi is only being called once. If it is, ensure that the option to automatically print the Front Panel after execution of the VI is disabled. Follow the steps below to check if this option is disabled.
  1. Navigate to File>>VI Properties
  2. Select Print Options from the Category drop-down menu
  3. Ensure the box next to Automatically Print Panel Every Time VI Completes Execution is unchecked
  4. Click the OK button
