Hi

I understand that you can assign multiple print queues to a printing device. Can you disable the print queues but left only one active at any time.

To elaborate more, the different print queue is to allow different types of paper to be used for each queue.

Hi,

I would say create multiple print devices, give them a  distinctive name like printerblankpaper and printerofficepaper or something like that. Then if you need to "disable" a print queue, just make sure to "Pause Printing" at the printer where you want the queue to be disabled. You could also make sure that the printer you need to "stop" is an Offline printer..
