Re: how do I print in black without using my color ink on my pixma mx 922 printer?

After reading a lot more thasn I cared to I found out that for my Canon Printer the MX922 one can select greyscale. But, there is always a but isn't there, the print cannot be 2 sided for some reason. One side and somewhere in the pulldown dialog is a check mark for greyscale. See my screen shot below.Screen Shot 2017-05-20 at 10.18.33 AM.png

Hi ricardo474,

 

If you do not have the grayscale option with the current printer driver, before printing, please go to SYSTEM PREFERENCES, then PRINT AND SCAN or PRINTERS AND SCANNERS. Click on the minus button to remove the current listing for your printer. Next, on the left side there will be an option to add a printer; click on the + button. Select your printer and under "USE" select the Canon MX920 Series printer with IJ NETWORK listed with it.  If you still experience difficulty, we ask that you please contact a Canon technical support representative here for further assistance. A representative will be happy to assist you free of charge.

Re: how do I print in black without using my color ink on my pixma mx 922 printer?

I need this information also. 

 

I use a MacBook Pro.  My operating system is OS X El Capitan 10.11.6.

 

Here is my driver info you requested from previous inquiries:

 

Canon MX920 series:

Status: Idle
Print Server: Local
Driver Version: 2.0
Default: Yes
System Printer Sharing: Yes
Shared: Yes
URI: dnssd://Canon%20MX920%20series._ipp._tcp.local./?uuid=00000000-0000-1000-8000-00BBC123F2EB
PPD: Canon MX920 series-AirPrint
PPD File Version: 2.0
PostScript Version: (3010.000) 0
CUPS Version: 2.1.0 (cups-435.2)
Scanning support: Yes
Scanning app: /Library/Image Capture/Devices/Canon IJScanner5.app
Scanning app (bundleID path): -
Scanning app version: 3.3.4
Scanner UUID: 15E06800-0000-0000-0000-000000000000
Printer Commands: none
CUPS filters:
image/jpeg: processed in printer
image/urf: processed in printer
Fax support: No
PDEs: 

 

When I follow the instructions and open TextEdit, it does not give me the option of choosing 'Print' as you suggested to a previous inquiry.  I don't know how to get to a place where I can choose to print "grayscale" or "black and white."

 

Any help will be appreciated.

Re: how do I print in black without using my color ink on my pixma mx 922 printer?

What is the deal with printing black text with magenta and cyan ink, while ingoring the two full black ink tanks. 

If you aren't going to use black in to print black text, when are you going to use it?

Why do I have to change a setting on my computer to use black ink to print black text?  That is stupid.  It should be the default setting to use black ink to print black.  I am dumbfounded.

Re: how do I print in black without using my color ink on my pixma mx 922 printer?

langostino,

 

When printing web-based items such as web pages or emails, combinations of the color inks will be used to product composite blacks and grays.  This is due to the nature of web-based content as oppsed to standard word processing files which typically use the black ink tanks on our printers.
