Yes, but not by default. When upgrading from PaperCut MF 18.1.4 or earlier, if Advanced Print Scripting is detected, then the default is NOT to allow users to change print settings. This prevents users from being able to contravene print policies implemented via scripting.
However, change the default settings to allow users to change print settings of held print jobs on the device if your Advanced Print Scripting:
- does not affect the print settings that can be changed
- converts a print job to grayscale or 2-sided (users cannot contravene this change at the device anyway).
For more information, see Configure the ability to change print job settings at the device.
