Print in greyscale on hp 8600 plus?

HP 8600 Plus All-in-One

Mac OS Lion

 

I'd really like to have the option for Greyscale or black ink only appear on the print dialogue screen, but the preferences don't show any options. Any reason I'm forbidden to use the printer that I paid for in the way that I want to?

 

I've been through all the forums, and the dialogues on the printer, and can't seem to get any response.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Okay, does anyone here have a solution on printing in halftone.  Not sure if that is what its technically called.  But printing drafts without having to use a full print ink.  or for thin paper, most of the recyclable paper is so thin you can't print double sided unless you reduce the ink.

Re: Print in greyscale on hp 8600 plus?

im just a user owner HP 8600, but in the software to print.... for osx mavericks 

 

go to print, and theres a check box for double sided and also ine for greyscale black only,

 

when I was on leopard, grafting into lion, i was using printopia as a fix, which allowed the greyscale feature, if you do not see it in your print dialogue box.
