I am using word on my ibook with an epson printer and for the life of me I can't find where I can change the print settings to print in Black and White? Any help would be appreciated and I understand some of the comments I will get. I have been on here to long to know that I will get some smartass replies......so I am ready for em. Thanks

i hope this will explain it. was going to write up the steps to go with it but dinner's ready. click on "copies and pages" and go down to color sync. and some printers will have additional black and white/grayscale colors outside of these.

On a similar note, is it possible to print selections in safari?

Hey now, don't be like that. 'Ask a stupid question and get a stupid answer' and all that. This isn't one of them.

For every Epson printer I've had the toggle from GS to colour has been under 'Print Settings' (see where 'ColorSync' is in alcimedes' screen shot? It's there towards the bottom of the list). Then you'll find a Color/Black pulldown. Easy as that.*

*That said, some programs refuse to acknowledge this. Macromedia Freehand being the most heinous offender. Illustrator and most others will happily print whatever with just the Black ink cartridge. Freehand deems it necessary to print your 'Black' as a combination of all CMYK cartridges. It's annoying as hell.

So it goes.

If your printer has separate ink tanks for colour and black, you could just pull the colour one.

Of course, this might introduce bubbles into the jets, but...

OK OK I recognize an invitation when I see it.

Print in colour and then take the page to Apple's new "iCopy" B&W photocopier, (only $500 extra with a new iMac).
