Priority for print settings for Mac
Changes to print settings are prioritized depending on where the changes are made:
The names of commands and dialog boxes might vary depending on your software program.
Page Setup dialog box: Click Page Setup or a similar command on the File menu of the
program you are working in to open this dialog box. Settings changed here might override
settings changed anywhere else.
Print dialog box: Click Print, Print Setup, or a similar command on the File menu of the
program you are working in to open this dialog box. Settings changed in the Print dialog box
have a lower priority and do not override changes made in the Page Setup dialog box.
Default printer driver settings: The default printer driver settings determine the settings used
in all print jobs, unless settings are changed in the Page Setup, Print, or Printer Properties
Printer control panel settings: Settings changed at the printer control panel have a lower
priority than changes made anywhere else.
