Hi @mckinney3, yes, it does exactly that for me. I tested printing to a PDF and to my laser printer, and both retained the changes I made in the Printer setup prior to the Print One Copy command each time (Windows 10, Photoshop 24.0.1 Release). Is it not working that way for you on your macOS?

Right. If you don't switch images, the Print One will retain the settings. But honestly, I don't ever remember using the “Print One Copy” feature myself until you mentioned it! Seems as though it would come in handy for exactly what you describe.

Print settings should be saved in the document (it is sticky per doc). 

Open an image, set up Printer XX, make a print, and nothing more; try closing the document, it should ask you to save it. 

Open the same document, those settings should stick; if you alter them, you're asked for a "Save" again.
