Default Auto print when edited and saved?

Is there a setting or any code that would allow for this to happen?

THe situation is, we have a file that is shared at work among two departments and the preference is to keep the hardcopy updated as well as the online copy. In order to preserve as much paper as possible, I was thinking if we only printed the edited paged instead of printing the entire file (200 pages), we would be okay.

However, I know its like pulling teeth to get people to update the hardcopy, so I am curious if the following is possible:

-Say I make a change to page 46. When I am done, I save it. Is there a way to get the edited page to print automatically to a predermined printer (we all have different printers set as our default).

Hi mrkris,

Unless you're using Word's 'Track Changes' tool, there would be no way for Word to identify which page(s) had been updated. Even then, it would be difficult for Word to know which changed pages should be printed. Suppose, for example, you add a paragraph. Should all the pages affected by the consequential pagination changes be printed? Since Word doesn't track that, user intervention would be required. Furthermore, how would it know which changes to print - all those made today, or only those since the last save? For the dangers of trying to maintain maulas on the basis of replacing individual pages, see:
