i don’t have the quality and media option. i have colorsync. now what?

It appears to me that this only works when you are printing a page/document while in Safari. Otherwise Safari isn’t on the pop up button which takes you to Quality & Media, etc. Attempting to print saved doc. in Appleworks,etc. doesn’t take you from the
pop up Appleworks to Quality & Media. Can’t get to step #3 an Grayscale Printing option.

how do i print in black and white? doesn’t give me grey scale option anymore!

Thanks. I never would have found it :)

I clicked gray scale and it still didn’t work very well. It only printed some of the page.

Can I save my Grayscale printing specs in some way other than “Last Used…” so that I can select it from a menu? I currently have a “Grayscale” option from a previous printer set-up that changes nothing (still prints colors).

i looooooooooooove youuuu whoever did this! thankssss

This is for Tiger, what about Leopard?

This does not apply to current versions of OSX

How do I make the change so it is my default setting so I do not have to change it everytime I print a doc?

For 10.6 os 1. Make sure that you are choosing Vendor
Matching option in Color Matching. This basically enable printer to
take over the control of Software( such as Office for Mac). 2. Go
to Paper Type/ Quality then you will see a little triangle option
called Color options. In there you are select GRAYSCALE
