Hi,

 

Looks like you have to do this from the aplications. Here is the procedure from its manual, page #36:

 

1. Load paper in the tray. For more information, see Load media.
2. On the File menu in your software application, click Print.
3. Make sure the printer you want to use is selected.
4. To change settings, click the button that opens the Properties dialog box. Depending on your software application, this button might be called Properties, Options, Printer Setup, Printer, or Preferences.
5. Change the paper orientation on the Layout tab, and paper source, media type, paper size, and quality settings on the Paper/Quality tab. To print in black and
white, click the Advanced button, and then change the Print in Grayscale option.
6. Click OK.
7. Click Print or OK to begin printing

 

Regards.

BH

Unfortunately, this only changes the settings for that particular document.

 

I am trying to work out how to permanently change the settings so that the printer always prints in black and white, and am finding it very difficult to find the answer.

 

Any assistance would be appreciated.

 

Thanks :smileyhappy:

Hi PhilPhil,

 

I am not sure why it is asking you to enter a value.

 

Try clicking your Apple icon in the top left corner and then clicking about this Mac and should tell you which version you are running.

I am running Maverick OS X 10.9 (13A603) There is no option I can find when printing or when configuring printer to select either b/w or grayscale. I would like to set this up to be my default printing. I am also purchasing a second tray and will soon be wanting to configure one tray for default grayscale and the other for 4x6 color printing. Thanks for guidance ... Tom

Hi wolfmurphy,

 

You can use the instruction in the following document to adjust your print settings and print in grayscale. > Mac OS X: Printing with the Black Print Cartridge Only Option.

 

If you would like additional assistance feel free to post back and I will follow up with you.
