    After installing Leopard I now have no printing options (like "print only page one", or "print greyscale only"). The only option I get is "last settings used".
    How do I get my old options back?

    I have looked on Apple and on Cannon and both say I have the most updated software and drivers.

    I am using a G5 powermac 1.8 and a Cannon MP830 printer.

    Can anyone help?
    Thanks,
    Jinny

    Did you click the little blue arrow on the right side of that panel? It'll expand to the full printer dialog box.

    you can permanently expand the print dialogue window by copy and pasting this command into Terminal.

    Code:
    defaults write -g PMPrintingExpandedStateForPrint -bool TRUE
