How do I print in draft quality from Mac

CP1525nw
Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan

I have re-installed the latest driver for my Mac. When printing I don't have any option for the quality. 

 

The" Media & Quality" only allows me to chose the tray and size of paper.  It does not show a draft quality option.  

 

Early on during my ownership of this HP product (probably at least 5 years ago) it allowed me a check box for draft quality.  

Is it possible that the driver is not compatible with my Mac OSX10.11 El Capitan on my MacBook Air?

How do I print in draft quality from Mac

Hello, @jpMAC– Hope you are well 🙂
 

Thank you for becoming an HP Forum member. It is a great location to get help from the community, get suggestions and find what has worked for others!

 

I see that you are trying to change the print quality to “draft” mode. Let’s first try the steps below to try and fix the issue:

 

  • Click the Apple menu icon, and then click “System Preferences”.
  • Click “Printers and Scanner” / “Print and Scan” or “Print and Fax”.
  • Right-click the blank space in the Printers list, and then click “Reset printing system”.
  • Click “Reset” in the confirmation window.
  • Enter an administrator username and password, and then click “OK”.
  • Wait until the printing system is reset and no devices show in the Printers list
  • Restart your computer and then go back to System preferences – Printers and scanners.
  • Click the “Add button” (+).
  • Find, and then select the name of your printer from the printer list, and then click “Add” to add your printer.
  • Click “Print Using...”, and then select the name of your printer (By default “Airprint” would be selected)

 

Now, try and change the print quality by going to Presets – Paper type/quality. You should get the “Draft” option now.

 

Those steps should do the trick, let me know the outcome!

Good luck 🙂
