Follow these steps to change print settings, and then print in Mac OS X 10.6. Step one: Select your product
  1. In the program from which you want to print, click File , and then click Print . Figure 11: Click File, and then click Printc02458420.jpg
  2. Select your product from the Printer: drop-down list.
Step two: Change print settings

  2. If you want to print multiple copies, select the Collated check box to print the pages of each copy in order.
  3. Select the pages of the print job that you want to print. To print all pages, select All. To print a specific range of pages only, type the page number that begins the page range in the From text box. Then, type the page number that ends the page range in the To text box.

I have 2 printers, an HP C6180 All-in-one and a new HP Color LaserJet 1600. I installed the new laserjet but when I want to print pictures, it prints from the C6180. The drop down menu to select what...


If I understand your question, you want to choose the printer dependent upon the task, which is perfectly understandable.

The method for calling upon a document or photo to be printed can be changed to accommodate your wishes. If, in your specific software program, you are presented with a printer icon (or stylized button) to print a document or photo, your computer (without asking) will print to the "default" printer connected to the computer. In your case, this appears to be the HP C6180.

If in addition to this printer icon or button you have a menu in your software application, and the menu has "File" as a choice, you can click it, then click "Print..." (The dots after the word in the sub-menu "Print..." mean simply that you will receive a followup screen where more options may be chosen). In your case, this is where you may wish to switch printers (if both are installed properly) and print your document or photo on the printer of your choice - you will be able to set a miriad of other optional print features as well, should you choose to do so.

I hope that this explanation is helpful. I appreciate your question!

How do you print at 50% w/ an 5610 all in one


I am taking you literally in as much as you did not say "copy at 50%" which is done through the 5610's front control panel.

To print at 50% you use the browser printer settings.

Firefox:
1. Go the the "File" drop down (upper left)
2. Go down to the "Print Preview" selection... a preview screen will then be displayed.
3. Look to the top right part of the screen to find the "Scale" field and set this to 50%. The page will repaint to show you the new print size.
5. Hit print

Internet Explorer:
1. Go the the "File" drop down (upper left)
2. Go down to the "Print Preview" selection... a preview screen will then be displayed.
3. Look along the top-right of the screen for a drop-down field that may say "Shrink to Fit" or a percentage. click this and set it to 50%. The page will repaint with your new setting.
4. Hit the printer icon in the upper left to print.

Hope this helps. Best of luck - Dan
