Printing: Create Printer Presets for Ricoh Floor Printers (Mac)

In order to print to Ricoh floor printers, you need a 4-digit project print code. On a Mac computer, these print codes are entered into what is called a printer preset. This document takes you through the steps needed to create a printer preset.

Prerequisites (Assumptions)

•  You have already added the Ricoh floor printer you wish to use.

Steps to create a printer preset:

1) Open Microsoft Word and open any document, or create a new one and Select “Print” from the “File” menu.
    Note:  You can use just about any Mac application to create a printer preset, but I just prefer using Microsoft Word.


2) In the Print window that appears, make sure your printer is selected. In our example we will choose "Zanzibar".


Select the Ricoh printer


3) Select "Job Log" from the the unlabeled pulldown menu, which by default is set to "Copies & Pages".


Choose Job Log from pulldown




4) In the resulting window, enter your WCER username within the "User ID" text field. Click the "Enable User Code" checkbox and enter your project's 4-digit code within the "User Code" text field.

Enter username and user code


5) Select "Printer Features" from the the pulldown menu which you previously changed to "Job Log", and in the resulting window, select "Black and White" from the "Color Mode pulldown menu.

Choose color mode for this preset


6) Select "Save Current Settings as Preset..." from the the "Presets" pulldown menu.


Save setings as preset...




7) In the resulting window, enter a name for the preset within the "Preset Name" text field. I chose to name mine "Zanzibar - B&W - 1234" so that if I ever need to print for another project, I won't be confused as to which preset I should use.


Give the preset a name.




A printer preset has now been created for Zanzibar. You may click either the "Print" or "Cancel" buttons and the preset will remain.
