Adding the printer on a Macintosh

Peage does not support the native printing method for Macintoshes (Cups or IPP printing). There is a 'Workaround' that uses 'Windows Printing'. The procedure does not allow for errors, when making an error you will have to delete the printer and start all over again, which is not very user friendly.

  • Open “System Preferences”, select “Print & Fax”

  • In the top menu go via "System" to "Administration" and click on "Printing“
