Label Creator - Always Selects Lightscribe As Default Printer

Question

Hi,

 

Kind of a minor thing, but when I'm ready to execute a print job, Label Creator always selects Lightscribe by default. It's no big deal to manually change to my desired printer, but before doing so I have to wait for the printer selection dialog to become available as Label Creator reads the Lightscribe drive. Is there any way to specify a default to the printer I normally use?

 

Thanks!

If you go to File,Print and change the printer does it change back when you reopen the app?

Yes, that's exactly what happens.

It has to do with the Layout that has focus when you click Print.

 

If you have a DVD Case selected, it will "default" to printer.

 

If you have a Disc selected it will "default" to your Burner.

 

But once the print window is open, changing the Layout seems to make no difference :angry2:

 

Try it.

I didn't notice it until you asked and I went looking.

I've used just about every version of EMC over the last 10 years but as a die-hard SureThing (and sometimes Acoustica) Labeler fan I've never really paid much attention to Roxio's Label module. That said, curiosity has gotten the best of me. Since my last posting I've been experimenting with with the "Auto Fill From Disc" option and can't get it to read CD-Text from my disc (if that's what it's supposed to do). I've also noticed that in Options > Online Music Database, all 3 of the check boxes are grayed out. I dunno... overall I'm quite impressed with Creator 9 but I think I'll stick with SureThing for labeling ;-)

Just speculation on my part as I don't have a lightscribe burner. Does the lightscribe software generate a 'printer' in control panel, Printers and Faxes applet? If so, check that is not set to default?

No, but thanks for the suggestion. LS enabled drives only appear as printers within the UI of a LS enabled printing application. At this point I'm fairly sure Rox defaults to LS intentionally. Most other apps ("Surething" for example) remember the last used printing source and default to it until changed by the user. Thankfully it's a minor annoyance.
