But where does the currently printjob go to? To the currently selected printer...

But you are right. Once I change the printer, my settings stick to the
last printer. A user may misunderstand that. It needs clarification.

Thanks for noticing...

Now imagine it was not just 10% (kaddprinterwizard, kjobviewer,
printmanager etc. are still missing), but 100% complete and
the same for all the base and many of the other KDE apps --
wouldn't that be a very powerful advertising argument for
the next release and a feature on its own to boast. It
definitely means usability improvements...

That's what I'm saying. 98% of users won't...
