    FM default printer

    john9210

      The Print dialog box sets the FM default printer and the Page Setup dialog does not. How can I script changing printer properties for printing and then change back to the FM default printer? Since Page Setup won't do it, it doesn't seem possible.

          Hi, John.

           

          The Print script step allows you to set the printer.

            Hi MIke. Thanks for responding.

             

            Yes the print step sets the printer, but after printing, how do I reset to the default printer without printing again!. Normally, I print with the FM default printer (which is the Windows defautl printer) with it's associated properties. On certain layouts I need to change the printer properties and print. I want to then change the printer properties back to the default values. I don't want to print again to do this and I don't want to reset them on the next manual print job.

              You need a printer management plugin as far as I know.  I am currently using MyFMButler's PrinterSwitch and it works fairly well.  It doesn't allow you to natively change the # of copies to print, but that isn't the biggest issue for my solution currently.
