The Apple Safari browser uses its own, in-built print service for printing, which has been simplified for ease-of-use.
The Safari browser's print service does have access to all the printers you have installed locally and on your network, however, it does not have access to the advanced configuration options of these printers. Because of this limitation, you cannot select a custom print tray, and the page will always print on whatever tray is the printer's "Default Tray".
When you print a page in Safari, there are five print settings that may affect your print job -
- Destination (where the page will be printed)
- Layout (the orientation of the page)
- Paper size
- Background graphics (required for printing Investigations Requests and logos on letters)
The Safari browser saves the print settings of the last page printed, meaning that if you changed the Layout or Paper size the last time you printed, the next print job will also print with those settings.
If you regularly change your print settings when you print in the Safari browser, then you should make a habit of quickly checking these settings before you click Print.
