Abstract

Disclosed is an application that allows industrial printer operators to configure the printer to their own needs so they can quickly access functions their shop uses often and hide other functions their shop rarely uses. The typical embodiment described below works by having the user set two drop-down boxes on the printer console. There is a drop-down menu for each specialty button. The list contains the list of possible actions to assign to that button. If the user doesn't assign a value to that button then the buttons will be defined a default value.
