  • If this is about restricting color, you can always set ID Manager to allow monochrome only jobs if therr is no ID provided.

  • Thanks for the reply The Repairatrooper​ - the issue is not so much about color, more about printing limits. So staff having a set allowance per month for print. 

    e.g. 1000 black and white prints etc

    The current driver bypasses the pop up for ID Manager and sends the job straight to print, so technically anyone can print 100,000 copies and it will accept it, even if they have 1000 limit.

  • Another option might be pull print system that works by having them email the job to the printer and then having to enter an ID to retrieve their job. You might want to look into Print Evolve from Capellatech. We had a non-profit that was having issues with student volunteers printing out text books on weekends that that sealed off that waste of paper well. They support MAC but I cannot tell you if they have a method to deal with google, but you can completely restrict print jobs this way.

  • The Chrome PrePrint Dialogue box does not contain a different driver, just different default controls, much like what Adobe Acrobat does on a Mac.  (you have to press the "Printer..." button to get to the system dialogue box).  On Chrome, you need to go down to Show System Dialogue.

    Chrome still uses the same driver, but the options it presents are usually of last-known usage, and not Defaults from CUPS or those shown in the Mac system dialogue box.

    All this can be changed in the keyboard controls.  Cmd+Shift+Print will open the system dialogue box instead of the Chrome dialogue box. Cmd+Print can be set to open the Mac OS dialogue box instead.

    Back in the day, Canon used to have a service called Driver Information Assist Service and it worked on TCP47545 to communicate with the device and/or server share to check the accounting rules, including pop-up codes, color pop-up authentication, etc. Not sure if that was ever ported to Mac drivers.

    Changing your UI to show the full Canon driver should allow for bidirectional communication if the Dept ID Mgt is enabled in the drop down (from the Layout dropdown).
