What is a virtual printer?

To be able to generate a job file, it is necessary to select a printer. In some cases, it might be impossible to select a remote printer. In this case, you can select a virtual printer. Virtual printer allows you to generate a job file and save it locally.

  • You cannot send your job file to a virtual printer.
  • You cannot add a virtual printer to My Printers
  • You cannot rename or delete a virtual printer.

To manage your printers in My Printers tab, hover the cursor over the printer:

  • To change the printer’s name, click the pen icon.

You should select the virtual printer that corresponds to the model of your printer. Otherwise, the generated job file might be incompatible with your printer.
