Printing default changes to PDF driver after printing to pdf in Mapinfo Professional


 

Issue

User has a MapInfo Preferred Printer  (or Windows Default) set to a hardware printer.
If he selects the "Create PDF" option within Pro, he prints to a PDF as expected.
If he then goes back to Print to his hardware printer, he notices that the Printer has been replaced with the PDF driver..

Cause

Pro is working as designed -
The Create PDF option is really just a short-cut that replaces the Windows Default/MapInfo Preferred Printer with the
relevant PDF driver.

Resolution

UPDATED: April 13, 2017
If you print to PDF and then you wish to print to a hardware printer, simply select the relevant driver at the "name" drop-down and print.
