HT204135 I have two Epson printers and one Canon printer. Why am I unable to access the same print options on my MacBook Pro as I could on mp PC i.e. select paper type and print quality?

I have just purchased a MacBook Pro as my PC has finaly died.
I have three Inkjet printers i.e. Epson Photo PX700W Epson Photo R340 and a Canon Pixma ip4600 which I connected to my Mac and the print drivers were automatically downloaded. Now when I print using any of the printers the functionality PC i.e. Choice of paper and print quality settings. Is this all I get when using the Mac OS lion or should the functionality be on a par with Windows?

Depending on the application you are printing from, you may need to press the Show Details button in the print dialog to see all of the additional driver menus.
The image below is for the extended print dialog of TextEdit and for a Canon MP990 printer. The Show Details button is on the bottom of the print dialog and will change to Hide Details when selected. And with the menu changed to Quality & Media, you have paper options and print quality settings.

  • HT1150 I have two shared printers and I want to be able to select the printer when it is time to print without having to set a default EACH time.  Can I just have a prompt to ask me which printer to use???

    I have two shared printers and I want to be able to select one printer when it is time to print without having to set a default EACH time.  Can I just have a prompt or dialog box that will ask me which printer would you like to use???  The only options I can find are "default" and "Last printer used" which means I must go into the Print & Fax area and change the default EACH time I want to print???  Seems very low tech.....

    In most cases you get this dialog box every time you print. It is called the print dialog and normally when you print, a print dialog appear showing the printer that is to be used. Which printer you see will be based on what you have set in Print & Fax as you mention. But regardless of what you have set there, you still have the option to change the printer via the print dialog.
    If you are using an application that does not show the print dialog, like MS Word and that stupid "print one copy" print icon in the toolbar, then you can often change the action the print icon uses so that the print dialog appears.

  • Can't select paper type or output quality when printing from new imac....

    Not sure if I'm in the right place to post this question....
    When I try to print (from ANY app; Photoshop, InDesign, etc.) to my hp business jet inkjet printer, I get a print menu, but no where on the print menu (or any pulldown tabs) do I have an opportunity to select paper type or output quality. I am unable to print photos, for example.
    The printer worked fine with the old PC; there is no driver to d/l for mac.
    Only from iPhoto can I select paper type (from a limited number of choices), but not from any other app on my imac. I mostly use InDesign and print flyers and brochures, many with photos, and can't select anything other than plain paper. Do I need a new printer? Genius bar 'help' said they had no idea why it wasn't working....
    HELP!!!
    Thanks!

    Hi Duane,
    Yes, I opened the Printer Driver package, and then pulled up my test InDesign file and selected File>Print, and here's the screen i get: (hope this works, I'm trying Skitch for the first time)...

    I've clicked on each topic on the left on the Print menu, and still there is no where to select paper type or output resolution.
    The same thing happens when I print from Photoshop.
    Thanks.

  • We have two iTunes accounts on one computer. Why is my music, apps, etc showing in my husbands account? home sharing is not selected

    We have two iTunes accounts on one computer. Why is my music, apps, etc showing in my husbands account? Home sharing is NOT selected. This recently became an issue when we added additional devices. Now we keep getting each other's apps!

    Se descargan aplicaciones para mi iPad 64 3G, las cuales en el momento de sincronizar no pasan a la iPad debido a que solicita una autorizacion para el ordenador la cual se autoriza con ID y el Password, esta orden se procesa y vuelve a solicitar nuevamente la autorizacion y asi sucesivamente.
    He intentado creando nuevas cuentas y desinstalando iTunes y volviendolo a instalar.
    Favor de orientarme en la solucion adecuada para el asunto comentado anteriormente.

    Your subscription allows for you to install on two machines.  One condition is that only one of the installations can be in use at any given time.

  • I have a short homemade film burnt onto a DVD, I now want to import the movie into IMOVIE on my MacBook Pro so that I can edit it, how would I go about doing this? Welcoming any guidance.  Thanks in advance.

    I have a short homemade film burnt onto a DVD, I now want to import the movie into IMOVIE on my MacBook Pro so that I can edit it, how would I go about doing this? Welcoming any guidance.  Thanks in advance.

    1. Insert your DVD.
    2. Open Disk Utilities (Application> Utilities> Disk Utilities). Highlight your DVD and press "New Image" on the upper toolbar.
    3. Choose the location you would like to save your DVD from the drop down menu, "Desktop" is usually the best choice. Then click Save.
    4. When finished, your DVD icon will appear on the desktop with the .dmg extension.
    5. With iMovie open, double-click the .dmg  file you created to mount it. The iMovie import window will then appear asking you to choose. Click Import All and wait for the Import to complete.

    videoDVD is a delivery format, normally end of the of the road...
    but, you can convert dvds into something editable, you need 3rd party tools, your options are, in recommended order:
    * DVDxDV (free trial, 25$, Pro: 90$)
    * Apple mpeg2 plugin (20$) + Streamclip (free)
    * Cinematize >60$
    * Mpeg2Works >25$ + Apple plug-in
    * Toast6/7 allows converting to dv/insert dvd, hit apple-k
    * connect a miniDV Camcorder with analogue input to a DVD-player and transfer disk to tape/use as converter

  • I have just purchased Photoshop Elements 13. Why am I unable to access the program?

    I have just purchased Photoshop Elements 13. I think it was installed. The title shows in my 'Downloads File'. I have tried double clicking on 'install' in the downloads file. All I get is a page of data that doesn't seem to do anything. When I purchased Photoshop Elements 12 there was no problem. The apps appeared on my monitor and I went to work. What appears on my monitor for Photoshop 13 is a file picure. When I click on it I go to the Downloads File. Can anyone help me?

    I am unable to access the Photoshop Elements 13 program.

  • Photo will not upload my pictures from the same camera that always worked in IPhoto.  Says "could not be imported (may be unrecognized file type or files may not contain valid data).  So how do I do it?

    Photo will not upload new photos from same camera that always worked in IPhoto.  Says "could not be uploaded )may be unrecognized file type or files may not contain valid data).  Help!

    Try image capture or a card reader - after the photos are safely on your Mac then use the camera's format command to reformat the memory card

  • I have two separate itunes libraries on two different computers. One computer has crashed, but they are both on the same account. Is there any way to transfer music onto a new library from a computer that cannot be turned on and have itunes accessed?

    Help?

    if the computer cannot be turned on, one option would be to remove the hard drive and put it in an external enclosure that can be connected to the working computer.

  • I have an Epson R2400 and I can not find the driver for borderless printing

    I have two Epson printers; I added the first, a R200 using the Printer Utility and in the add printer screen it asked me what page setup I wanted. I chose ALL and it gives me the ability to print borderless prints. I then added the R2400 using he Printer Utility but the "page setup" is grayed out and I do not have a borderless print option o this printer.
    I have tried deleting the R2400 from the list of printers and adding it again without success.
    I am using the drivers that came on the CD-ROM with the printer.
    Has anyone had a similar experience with the R2400 borderless print issue and might anyone have an answer?
    Thank you.

    Hi: Please click on the device in the device manager. Then click on the details tab. Post the top string of characters you see. Those will identify the type and model of the missing device and I can send you the link to the drivers. It is either your AMT driver, TPM driver or IMEI driver. In the meantime, install the chipset driver and reboot if you have not done so already. http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=12454&prodSeriesId=5037900&prodNameId=5037902&swEnvOID=1093&swLang=13&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=vc-88640-1 Paul

  • My shared iTunes library shows up fine on my Apple TV, but when I try to access the same library on my iPad to view the shared TV Shows everything jumbled and all over the place. There does not seem to be any order and many shows are missing.

    When trying to access the shared iTunes library of my Macbook Pro on my iPad(iOS 5.1) the TV Shows are all mixed up. Some shows are not even displayed. The same library display normally via my Apple TV. It appears that iPad using iOS 5 has lost the ability to recoginize that TV Shows have a main show title followed by a number of episodes eg., 'Top Gear', Season 17, Episode 1 to 6, and 'Modern Marvels', Vol lll, Episodes 1 to 16. This has to be a glitch with iOS 5 as it was working fine in previous OS versions.
    Does anyone know if Apple is aware of this anomally or is there a work-around? Thanks

    Perhaps you should ask over in the iPad community, you may get better answers there.
    It's actually my fault that psoon ended up here ... s/he intially posted over at Home Sharing, and I tried a relocate request to Apple TV rather than iPad.
