    Is it possible to set up in OSX (probably a 3rd party app?) so that different printers and setting are default for applications.

    I have a few different printers. I'd like my Brother Laser printer to be default for pages, and I have a zebra 420d that I want to be the default printer, with 4x6 labels for Chrome. (Where I print labels through shipstation)

    Any way to do this so I don't have to go and change the default settings each time.

    The biggest issue is, shipstation generates PDF's based on the page setting. So to get it formatted for the 4x6" label, I must set the printer default to 4x6. Obviously, when I'm trying to print standard pages, I have to go and change it.

    You could set these up using 'presets' within the print dialogue,

    So when you print to:

    1. Brother
    use 'Brother' preset

    2. Zebra
    use 'Zebra' preset

    Make sense?
