10.5: Open print/fax prefs from Print dialog in some apps System 10.5
If you have the Print dialog already open in some Apple applications (e.g. Safari, Mail, TextEdit), pressing Command-P will open Print and Fax preferences in System Preferences.

It seems to work inconsistently among Apple's programs. For example, it works in Safari and Mail, but in iCal, you have to hit Continue and then cancel the print dialog for the System Preferences to appear. In Preview, it seems that doing Command-P when the print dialog is already open sends the current document to the printer. So this behavior is inconsistent among Apple apps, and doesn't work in the non-Apple apps I've tried (Word, etc.).

for my system, it switches me to PageSender... which is a pretty cool alternative hint IMO

Doesn't seem to be working for me, in Safari or TextEdit. Perhaps this relies on some setting in System Preferences -> Universal Access, or System Preference -> Keyboard & Mouse -> Keyboard Shortcuts?
