Bug report: Using Canon C5051 printer with Adobe Photoshop CS5 in OS X 10.7.4

Problem: Photoshop CS5 crashes when selecting print settings in print dialog box.

Status: This happens when the printer drivers for the Canon C5051 printer is installed.

Solution: Add a generic post-script printer. Mark one printer (doesn't matter which) as default in the OS X printer settings.

We need to see the crash report to be sure, but that does sound very similar to several crashes we've seen in the Canon printer driver code. Unfortunately only Canon can fix their driver code.

Yeah I was guessing that much. Might be good to have this kind of solution out though, if others end up having the same problem.

Thank you for the tip! This works on the Canon MG2100 series also.
