Re: Black ink only

Can you give us some more information?  What printer?  Are you wanting to print from a computer or are you just trying to copy from your control panel. 

 

Read this thread for some help on the kind of information we need to help you.

Re: Black ink only

On your MAC, are you able to navigate to this menu for your printing option?

Re: Black ink only

The box you sent looks like that and I know how to navigate the black and colour, but when I am in Chrome it is something different and this is where I am having the issue as can't find the drop down that says black or colour. Thanks.

Re: Black ink only

Hello Cheryl, So the problem you are encountering is limited to Chrome OS environment or when trying to print from Chrome browser in a MAC OS environment? Thanks :smileyhappy:

Re: Black ink only

Sorry, could you clarify if the problem that you are seeing is confined to the Chrome Browser from a MAC OS computer?

 

If yes, do you face the same problem when using a different Browser?

Sorry for jumping a little ahead ... assuming that you are trying to print through Chrome browser in a MAC, did you try to press 'Ctrl' + 'P' buttons to activate the print menu which allows you to select the between color vs black?

Also, please try a few different websites to establish if the non-availability of "Black and White" option is website url dependent.

Re: Black ink only

Yes, only with the Chrome Browser.
