Print macro

Specs: Macintosh
In the office where I work we have Word set to print
on standard paper but when I create a letter I want to
change it to print on letterhead without having to go
into the print feature every time and change the preset
from standard to letterhead. I would like to create a
keyboard macro to do this using command+L for the
letterhead macro and then of course alt+P to print the
document onto letterhead. I can’t figure out how to do
this. Any suggestions? Thanks.

No macro needed. Just install a second identical printer.

If the first printer is called Printer abc, call the second printer Printer abc LH (for letterhead). Set the properties of this printer to print on letterhead.

Then when you want to print, just select the appropriate printer from the drop down menu.

This also works for B&W/color, standard/high resolution, regular/toner saver, etc.

Great idea but my boss won't go for it so I'm still left with trying
to find a way to use a macro to switch printing options.
