    How do I edit the list of printers so when I go to print there is not a whole list of printers I have to sift through. I tried deleting the ppds but they keep reappearing I am getting quite frustrated.

    OSX Quark 6.1

    Many thanks

    Launch Printer Setup Utility. Uncheck the printers that you don't want.

    Go to System > Library >Printers > PPDs > Contents > Resources > en.lproj >

    Here are the old LaserWriter descriptions.

    Then go to Library (at root of your hard disk) > Printers > PPDs > Contents > Resources > en.lproj

    Here are some more.

    That cleared mine out. just be careful not to delete the printers you use.

    in Quark: Utilities -> PPD manager

    deselect whatever you're not using

    this way you won't actually be deleting any PPDs, which may or may not save you some future headache.
