Priority for print settings
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 override settings changed
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.
Printer Properties dialog box (printer driver): Click Properties in the Print dialog box to open
the printer driver. Settings changed in the Printer Properties dialog box do not override settings
anywhere else in the printing software.
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 dialog
Printer control panel settings: Settings changed at the printer control panel have a lower priority
than changes made anywhere else.
