distribute print job over multiple printers

Post by gimmejimmy » Fri Dec 19, 2008 6:55 pm

Is it possible for you to add a feature that will distribute a print job over two or more printers? For example if I have two printers and a 25 page job then the first printer will print 13 pages and the second printer will print 12?
I (and most probably many others) would gladly pay extra for such a feature.

Hello,

thank you for your suggestion!

This could be implemented in a future version of TurboPrint (there might be also a way to implement it now using existing CUPS / Linux mechanisms - e.g. splitting print jobs automatically and sending them to a "printer pool").

I've been searching everywhere on the web, even asked on the CUPS forum. I'm not the only one looking for this. I've seen posts from Linux, Windows, and Mac users asking for this feature.
