Duplicating a local printer

Duplicating a local printer

If you are adding a new local printer that is similar to an existing local printer, you can copy the configuration from an existing printer and make small changes, instead of starting from scratch. 

In the Printer Manager:

  1. Select the name of the printer to copy from the list of available printers.

  2. Select Duplicate from the Printer menu.

  3. Enter the name for the new printer.
The duplicated printer appears in the list in the Printer Manager window.

To customize the new printer, see ``Changing printer names and connections''.
