Abstract

Operations are provided to change initial work station and printer program defaults, thereby allowing en operator to customize defaults to fit the operator's individual requirements. When desired and selected from a program list or menu, a "change printer description" task allows the operator to specify the type of printer and the type of paper handling to be supported by a printer. Likewise, the "change work station description" task allows each user to specify the keyboards to be used and, also, to activate any optional system features.
