Hi,

My clients have an iMac that runs 10.5 I think, and they want to know how to print web pages using black ink only.

Is there a way to do this?

installed the new driver and rebooted my Mac. The new print driver has some new tabs and options. Here is what I did: File>Print>Paper Type/Quality(located in the pull down menu under Orientation and Scaling). Here, I now have three new tabs labelled: Paper; Color Option; Ink. Under the Paper tab, choose Color:Grey Scale. Under the Color Option tab, choose: Black Print Cartridge Only. Under the Ink tab, slide the arrow left toward light one line/bar (this will save us up to 33% ink). Then go back up to the Presets pulldown menu near the top of the page and choose Save or SaveAs and give it a useful name (Black/White/Grey).
