When printing automatically or directly to your printer from Shiptheory (ie upon barcode scan), the print job Shiptheory sends to your printer uses your default print settings.

On a mac / OSX the default print settings are not obvious to find, you'll need to modify them via the OSX Cups interface.

First, open Terminal, which you can find in your utilities.


         

In Terminal, copy and paste the following command into Terminal, then press Return on your keyboard:

cupsctl WebInterface=yes

Terminal will update with the following highlighted information:


Now, type the following link into your browser's address bar:

http://localhost:631/printers

On the page that appears, click on the label printer whose default settings are being edited. For this example, we are configuring the Zebra LP 2844:

Apple MacBook Pro set default print settings for Canon MX850 step 1.




Slect the printer you want to change settings for and then select Set Default Options.


Apple MacBook Pro set default print settings for Canon MX850 step 3.


Depending on the printer you have will depend on the options you have.

Apple MacBook Pro set default print settings for Canon MX850 step 4.


You can change any settings you need Shiptheory to use by default.  You may be prompted for a login, this is the user/password you use to login to your Mac normally.
