The Policies settings tab is divided into two sections. The Print job policies section contains settings that apply to all print jobs, all printers and selected users or groups.

The Printer policies section contains settings that apply to all queues, all print jobs, selected users (or groups) and selected printers.

Print job policies have the highest priority. Settings in the Printer policies section apply to all queues and all of the selected users, regardless of the settings of queues and print job policies.

Policies in both sections are listed in order of precedence: every policy has a higher priority than all the policies below it. If two policies are in conflict, the policy that is higher on the list applies. The default policy has the lowest priority and is always at the bottom of the list, other policies can be moved up and down the list by clicking the left or right arrow buttons on the Policies settings tab toolbar.
