    Hi,

    As the title suggests how do I print in B&W (I"m using Yosemite). I know that it's down to the print driver per se, but I don't have the option to print in B&W on any of my printers, but I do if I use the same printers on PC. Is there a way to do this one Mac?

    Cheers

    You might want to contact the manufacturer of the printer that supplies the printer driver. That is what I would do.

    Thanks, since writing this I've been on the Canon printer forum and the B&W setting is in the quality and media setting for some reason.

    You don't have this Black and White checkbox option in the print dialogue?

    Not all print drivers give the B&W option on the layout options. For instance, the print driver for my Xerox 6280DN has the B&W setting under the Printer Features options.

    As Taz says, they're not all the same and mine doesn't look like that. As I said I'Ve managed to find it in the quality and media section.
