    Define default printer by page format or filename

    Yves Willemaers Level 1

      Hi! As there are no solutions at the Printing & Prepress community, I would like to launch the topic over here.

      How to set up default printer by page format/page dimensions?

      For example, I print A6 pdf shipping labels (real A6 pdf format) with a labelprinter. Other A4 pdf documents must be printed by another printer.

      Now I sometimes forget to change the printer and the last chosen printer isn't always the right choice.


      Is there an existing method or javascript to set up the default printer, affected by the pdf page format?

      In that way in my case the default printer will be automatically selected by this unique variable: the page format or page dimensions.

      Another way might be by the pdf filename, as those files have a certain pattern/structure.
