Ah. Now I see what you're talking about. Yes, it's rather annoying
to have to switch the default printer in Word to match the target
printer, especially when the target printer is one that you can't
actually print to.

I had so much difficulty with the target printer/default printer/PPD
situation in PM 6.0 that I still hold a mild grudge against it, but I
agree that that's the right way to handle the situation.
