What can I script with Printer Setup Utility (and what can I not)?
I have a few Quark scripts which work fine but I seem to lose whatever settings I have set in the Printer dialog (like tray(“paper feed”), paper handling, etc.)
all the stuff you specify when you click on the “Printer…” button at the bottom.
Think most of the stuff when you click printer is from the actual printer PPD not the
printer set up utility.
You need to be setting that info via quark i guess?
But if like you say
you must be doing something right!!
This is how I use the print utility and
quark settings. Hope it helps.
