For example, whether the printout is to be carried out directly with the settings made, or a printer dialog is opened in which the user is, for example, can still set the pages to be printed.
Optionally, a print preview can also be displayed before printing.

Each high-pressure setting gets its own name. In addition, it is possible to specify the printer to be used, the paper chute and the number of copies.
If you want, you can specify exactly which pages are to be printed, whether the printout should be carried out in the reverse order, whether a concept print is desired or whether a watermark is to be inserted into the printout.
