Just out of curiosity, did you reboot after making the copy??
Thanks for chiming in. You betcha I rebooted.
(Hint: I'm pondering the cause of the unspecified Raw Port entry in the SS).
I've been carrying that on the books for quite some time.
BTW, after my first, failed attempt to do what I wanted — post reboot — I completely removed Canon drivers, started up again, had the OS 'find' the printer and then sent the install to fresh-from-Canon drivers. That left me with one perfectly working instance of the printer. On the next cycle I tried adding another instance and got the 'stacked' result (all on one icon) but both
instances responded to changes in either
one. At that point, after looking around the web and seeing that others had similar issues, I posted here and awaited the golden flow of combined wisdom. When I saw that Tomos had his setup working I took the steps detailed in my post previous to this. To me, the fact that the final go round worked implies that I missed something along the way (not totally unheard of
). I don't understand why it happened — did the OS treat the Canon initially as a network printer? — and I'm too idle to rip out the whole thing and go round yet again in order to research it.
Also, some of the universal printer drivers try to be an all in one single driver that handles all print devices by manufacturer X ... Which could be why the Canon(s) grouped-up on you.
Interesting. Tomos has the same grouping with his Canon but I've seen that others with other makes have the same phenomenon; dk if those are using the type of 'universal brand' driver to which you refer.
The grouping doesn't bother me at all. I simply want to pick a 'printer', from any drop-down, that will behave as I want with no intervening steps.
