    File -> Print and click the down arrow next to the printer name. then in the menu underneath orientation you can choose "Printer Features".

    clicking file in the program?. if thats it, then i cannot find printer features option.

    shouldnt this be located in the system preferences?

    if the printing window looks very small and unfeatured like below click the down arrow button.

    then choose "Printer Features" and the features for your printer should show up and allow you to choose B&W and draft. my features will look different to yours as i use Gutenprint drivers to wireless print.
