Pity the poor macOS Print dialog: it’s been around so long, and we don’t really look at it much. This is likely why Mac 911 receives regular (though not constant) questions about print settings. The Print dialog not just reflects Apple’s own notion of how printing should work, it also includes functionality from third-party print drivers, the software that tells macOS all of the parameters and special settings of particular output devices.
A recent question arose from a Macworld reader who, after upgrading to macOS 10.13 High Sierra, had their usually persistent print preferences change after each printing session. This was new for them, but you can generally avoid this by creating a preset.
