Description David Woodhouse 2013-08-19 16:19:33 EDT
We have PIN-based printing on all our corporate printers. It would be really nice to have a central place for a *user* to set their PIN, which is then used for all printers.

It's particularly awful at the moment because settings made in the application print dialog don't seem to be honoured consistently, or remembered for the next print attempt. You have to open the control panel and set it there, for each printer, before it works. Someone who actually works in an office was going to file a bug about that; I'll check on the status of that...

It would be very useful to have a way to consistently set these options, if they are present on *any* printer:

*DefaultHPPinPrnt: True
*DefaultHPFIDigit: 1
*DefaultHPSEDigit: 2
*DefaultHPTHDigit: 3
*DefaultHPFTDigit: 4
