    I have Canon MP810 printer/scanner and am using MBP 15" running Leopard (fully updated). I want to print in black and white (I don't want to waste the color inks for non-essential print jobs). There is no option for gray scale. Is there a way around this to make the printer print in black and white (gray scale)?

    I think this is possible by selecting print->quality&media->tick the option "gray scale print".

    This is what we do on a canon on my work but i can't remember the correct model. See if you can apply this on your canon.

    No luck with that method. There is simply no option for gray scale or black & white for some weird reasons.

    Is this some type of aggressive marketing scheme by Canon to make people print all jobs in color instead of giving them an option to use grayscale to conserve expensive color inks?
