I just got my first proper AirPrint printer (the Canon PIXMA 7120).
Like all printers, it has a ton of different settings for print quality, etc, and when you print from OSX, you get a print dialogue that lets you select things like
- Media type
- Paper source
But when printing from iOS native apps (I was using "Photos") the only choice I got was to select the AirPrint printer to print to.
When I printed, either iOS or the printer seems to have decided to use the tray that's dedicated to (4x6 or 5x7) photos, and to print in (high) photo quality, and spat out a beautiful print.
It seems possible that it makes assumptions based on the app you start from ("Photos" is probably sending a picture, while "Pages" more likely has a doc.
So, my questions is:
How does it decide what settings to use, and can I change them?
I might want it to print an 8X10 photo, or a pages doc on photo paper, etc.
