Change Mac Driver Defaults for 7545: From 2-Sided, Color to 1-Sided, B&W

Jump to solution

I have noticed a default change when upgrading Mac users from 10.5/10.6 to 10.7. The driver defaults for the WorkCentre 7545 v2.71 are defaulted to 2-sided printing and color. This is a problem for users on the Mac because there isn't a way to change the defaults, only to save a "preset" and manually select this preset before every print. Needless to say, it is an inconvenience for our users. Is there a way to change the driver defaults? I read some talk about modifying the PPD file, but I don't know where that is installed on the system when I run the driver installer. If anyone could help me out I woudl greatly appreciate it.

 

Thanks,

 

Kristian

Hey!

 

This can be changed in CUPS(127.0.0.1:631 on the mac/in safari)

Go to the Administration tab and select Manage printers.

After this you select the correct printer, and change default settings.

Here you can change everything :)

 

Thanks!
