You can configure your printing preferences (or printer settings) each time you print a document or you can configure the default printing preferences to be the same for all documents that you send to a printer.

If you always need to create a particular type of image or file, follow the steps in Setting Printing Preferences for All Documents.

Setting Printing Preferences from within an Application

You can access the preferences each time you print a file from the Print dialog when printing from most applications. This will only change the printer settings for this document at the time of printing.

In most applications, the printing preferences are located on the Print dialog, normally found on the program's File menu. In most applications you will need to click a button labeled similar to "Options", "Preferences", or "Advanced Options". This will depend on the application you are running.

Setting Printing Preferences for All Documents

Setting the preferences through the Printers folder (this is the Devices and Printers folder on Windows 7 and later, or the Printers and Faxes folder on Windows Vista and earlier) will set them globally so that the same options will be used when you print to Raster Image Printer from any application.
