Quick Mac OS X Tip: Drag & Drop Between Printer Queues

I’ve been a Mac user for a long time, and I didn’t know you could do this…

Let’s say you have 50 documents queued up and it’s taking a really long time to print. You want to switch over to a different, faster printer. Or, as in my case, you want to switch to print via USB instead of Bluetooth.

You have all these documents sitting in the queue of the first printer, and you don’t want to have to reselect the originals to print again.

As long as you don’t have to change any printer settings, did you know that you can open the print queues of both printers and drag & drop files between them?

Works quite well.
