Issue:  Similarly named printers on MacOS


SPM can’t differentiate between multiple printers if the first characters of the name are the same.


Solution:  Rename the printers.



  1. On your Mac, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Printers & Scanners.

  2. Select the printer in the list on the left.

  3. Click Options & Supplies, then click General.

  4. Type the new name and click OK.

You can also rename a printer by Control-click a printer in the Printers list in Printers & Scanners preferences, choose “Rename printer” from the shortcut menu, enter a name and location, then click OK.
