About: Print This

"Print This" is an Apple Script application made so that when you are not near a printer and you have a lot of documents to print you can get them all ready to print by dragging them all onto the "Print This" application. Then when you get to a printer you double click on "Print This" and all the documents are automatically printed. "Print This" will only set the documents to be printed once. If it has already set that document to print it will not print it again.
"Print This" will setup a folder to store all of its files. It creates alias in that folder to the documents that you tell it to print.


Read Me:

Setting Print This to ask you which printer to print with changes your default printer. When Print This is done printing your documents it will ask you if you want to change the default printer back to what it was. Don't click "Continue" until all the documents have been sent to the printer queue. If they have not been processed by the application printing them and you click continue they will not be printed by the right printer. Wait to press continue to until all the documents have been sent to print center where the queue is located. To see if the documents are in the queue click on Print Center in your dock and then double click on the printer that is printing your documents if it contains all the documents you set to be printed you can click "Continue" in Print This.
