Hi All:
Is there a way, maybe through the SASUSER profile, to set the default printer settings to a named setting?

My version is 9.1.3 SP4 on Windows XP.

Thanks,

Masoud

Hi:
Not sure what you mean by a "named setting", but here's a place to get started and then investigate more in the documentation or in the SAS companion documentation for your operating system.

Thanks Cynthia:
I will investigate that.
But, to explain a little more. Say the default setting for printing in windows is to to staple the sheet. But Also have another named setting to print with no staples, called "NoStaples".
My question is: is there a way to make "NoStaples" setting the default while in SAS, without changing the Windows default?

Thanks for your time.

Hi:
I thought those were printer-specific settings -- tied to physical devices.

SAS has system options that impact output (for example, I can create an ODS PDF document with particular margin settings or paper orientation, no matter what printer I have attached to my system.) But I can't imagine how I would use a "No Staples" type of setting. If, for example, I was creating ODS HTML output, then printing would be managed by the browser's interface to the printer, so my "No Staples" setting in SAS would have no impact or no chance to impact the HTML in the browser.

If I created an ODS RTF file, then most of my margins, fonts, printer settings, etc, could by changed by merely editing the document once it was opened in Word, in which case, printer settings inside SAS become irrelevant.

If the documentation on printing/printer settings does not help you, you might want to work with Tech Support on this question.
