"the files keep overwriting my printer preferencs and automatically coming up as an adobe photoscript file??"

 

From this, the nature of your problem is not really clear. "The files" can't overwrite your operating system-level print settings. Are you saying that when you attempt to print from Illustrator, your default printer is displaced by "Adobe Postscript"?

 

Please post again with an exact description of what you're seeing, and include the version of Illustrator, your operating system, and screen captures, if possible.

Okay, so the selection displayed on the Print Preset menu is sticky, or saved with the file. If you access that menu and choose "[Default]" and then re-save the file, the next time you call up the Print dialog (from this file), you will get your Default printer.

Hey,

 

Thanks for your reply, ive notcied this in some cases where i have tried to save a default and checked the same file if it then recognises that if i go to print again, however i was hoping there was a way to change the preferences in illustrator as once ive printed a file i dont need to print that same one again i print 100's of files a day and their all saved with those presets now? this is a new issue since updating illustrator so i was hoping there was a way around it, if that makes sense?
