S/4 Hana printing to LOCL

Hello SAP community,

This is a long shot but I'd like to ask anyway.

So I have this customer that uses S/4 Hana on Cloud (HEC) and they are faced with a showstopper when it comes to printing. Their functional team has enabled output management for S/4 hana per notes:

https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2292571

https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2292539

Now, it appears to them that with this configuration, printing to LOCL has become impossible, per notes:

https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/128105

https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/616762

The business scenario here is that they have endusers at the warehouse - for example, 10 workstations - each workstation has its own connected local printer (via USB cable, i.e. not network printer). The users will be printing packing slips and invoices using Fiori app and/or SAPGUI. But in this scenario, per the notes specified above, LOCL printing will not work.

Questions:

1. What are your recommendations in this scenario? Is it more of an application or ABAP related solution?

2. If the printers are converted to network printers, and let's say user A (who normally logs in to workstation 1 that prints to network printer 1) now uses workstation 3 that must use network printer 3, how will SAP know that when user A logs in to workstation 3, to print to network printer 3?

Thank you for time and hope to hear any inputs/feedback.
