Your reserved printers are always ready for printing. Reserving your printers secures your limited printer seats for printers essential to your operations and makes sure specific printers are always available to print.

Adding other printers does not remove the reserved printers from the Licensed Printers list.


A reserved printer takes a printer seat even if it is not used. The reserved printer seat becomes available when you unreserve that printer and the printer has not been used for the past 7 days.


Control Center automatically removes the unreserved idle printers from the Licensed Printers list after seven days.

To reserve or unreserve printers in Desktop Designer, Automation and Print:

  1. Go to File > Options > Licensed Printers. The Licensed Printers table opens.

  2. Enable or disable the Reserved option for your printers.


To reserve or unreserve printers in Control Center:

  1. Go to Printers > Licensed Printers.

  2. Select your printers and click Reserve printers or Unreserve printers button.
