Dialogue box doesn't appear when printing on Canon TR7020a

I just purchased a new Canon printer. I noticed that when I print a document, no dialogue box appears for me to change settings such as the quality of the print job (draft etc.) before it starts printing.

Does this printer not offer that, or do I need to do something?

TIA

It does print even if the dialogue box doesn't appear. I guess I should just not worry about it 🙂

If need be, I can change it directly on the printer.

Thanks for your assistance. It's appreciated.

What software are you printing from?

I’m not sure. I have a Mac computer. Could it be that I was printing some PDFs? I tried a document and the dialogue box did come up.

Sounds like an individual software issue then. See if you can identify the software.

Are we talking printer software or computer? I just use CMD-P to print.  I use the Canon app for scanning.

When I type CMD-P with a PDF it opens the Adobe Acrobat reader print dialogue. It is going to depend on the default programs you have configured. Does it print OK even if you don't get a dialogue box?
