The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft PowerPoint for Macintosh, version 4.0
  • Microsoft Word for the Macintosh, versions 6.0, 6.0.1, 6.0.1a
  • == Apple Macintosh System Software 7.6.1, 8.0 ==


This article describes how to find program specific settings for the Apple LaserWriter 8.4.x printer driver (this version of the print driver ships with the Macintosh System Software 7.6.1 and 8). With earlier versions of the LaserWriter printer driver, the program settings appeared on the default screen of the Print dialog box. With the LaserWriter 8.4.x driver, the general print options appear on the default screen.

To see the program specific printing options for the Apple LaserWriter 8.4.x printer driver, follow these steps:

  1. On the File Menu, click Print.
  2. Click Print Options and then click the program you want. For example, click Microsoft Word.

NOTE: Clicking Save Settings does not save the currently selected printer option (for example, program or Background Printing). General is always the default option.
