Is it in the Lightroom Print module UI? Or is it in a dialog from the print driver? Can you post a screen shot?

It saves the photos and the print settings as a Saved Print, which is stored in the Collections panel.

Victoria. Perhaps you can help me with this. I'm printing 72 images for an MFA submission. I usually print in batches, maybe 5 or 6 at a time. When I printed the first set, I created a 'Saved Print' collection. When I print the second one, I cannot add to that same group. Is there any work around? This would only be useful to me if I printed the 72 images at once, but that's a very unpractical scenario. Thanks for your help!

Switch to Grid view Martin, and drag the additional photos onto that Saved Print collection. That'll add them to the collection.

Thanks Victoria. I seem to have seen that the Saved Print would associate a printer profile information to the images so you knew in which papare and what ICC profile and rendering intent was used. I cannot seem to fins this information anywhere in this collection. Where do I see this? And, when I drag new images there, does that same information get associated with the dragged files? Thanks a lot again! :)

When you reselect a photo in that collection, the settings should automatically update in the panels. Any new images should gain the same settings.
