SetPrint changes the default FrameMaker printer. You can always change it manually in FrameMaker, just as you would if you didn't have SetPrint.
The FrameMaker File > Print Setup only changes the FrameMaker printer for your current FrameMaker session. SetPrint sets it at the start of every FrameMaker session. Personally, I prefer to always print to PDF first, which is one of the reasons I wrote SetPrint. I have found that FrameMaker output looks best when you create a PDF. This is especially important if you use embedded EPS graphics, for example.
