Chapter 7. Printing and Faxing > Configuring Printer Preferences

Configuring Printer Preferences

Once you've added a new printer icon, you might want to make alterations and customizations to the printer setup. For example, you can do the following:

  • Choose the default printer if you have more than one printer installed.

  • Set job defaults pertaining to paper tray, two-sided printing, scaling, type of paper feed, halftone imaging, printer setup information (such as a PostScript “preamble”), and paper orientation.

  • Check and possibly alter device-specific settings such as DPI (dots per inch), memory settings, and font substitution.

  • Share the printer, and specify its share name so that other network users can use your printer.

  • Declare a separator file, usually one page long, that prints between each print job with the user's name, date and so on. (These are handy on busy networked printers so users can find their own output among stacks of printouts.)

  • Arrange security for the printer by setting permissions (if you have Computer Administrator privileges).
