Moving Jobs Between Printers in OS X


An Epson C45 Inkjet Printer.

My wife printed 6 documents to a printer that is configured on her laptop, but not available. She came to me and asked if I could help. I said she'd have to delete them from the print queue and reprint them to the right printer. "Can't you just grab them and move them to the right printer?" she asked innocently.

Of course not. Or, can you? Turns out you can. I opened the other printer, highlighted the jobs, and simple drug them over. They started printing. I was pleasantly surprised. File this under "sometimes we want to make things more complicated than they need to be."
