The assumption that is made is that once you change printers, you want that change until either YOU change it to another or you exit the program. To show you that this is true, select your secondary printer, print something and then exit the program (don't just close the file). Relaunch the program and check the printer selection. You should see your default printer as the selection.
Looks like your system is working correctly
First off, let me say that I really appreciate the help that I ALWAYS get on this forum. It's great.
Here is my problem. I have a default printer set (let's just call it HP 1). All of my print jobs are set to go to HP 1, unless I instruct otherwise. Here is the problem, let's say I want to print envelopes and I need to print to HP 2. I go to my document, go to file and select print to HP 2 (that way it does not automatically print to the HP 1 - my defualt printer). This is good.
Here is where the problem lies. Once I finish printing to that alternate printer, whatever it may be. The selection will not move from that alternate printer unless I tell it to. What I mean is, once I close that document out and go to a brand new document, if I want to print to my default printer I have to manually select it or else the job will be sent to the alternate printer. Does this make sense?
I thought the purpose of a defualt printer was for all jobs to print to that printer UNLESS you instruct the pc otherwise. Therefore, why doesn't it defualt back? Meanwhile, if I go to control panel and go under printers, my defualt printer is definitely checked.
Does anyone understand what I'm saying? Is there a fix for this?
