I have a Pixma IP8700 and I use it to print photos. I am working with some old black & white photos at the moment and would like to force the printer to printer using only the Black (BK) & Grey(GY) (dye) inks so I can see what a print looks like without the cyan, yellow & magenta dots all over it.
How can I do this? I am using both Windows 10 & OS X Yosemite...
PS I can see online how to force the printer to use the black pigment ink only (by setting the paper to plain), but this is not what I want as printing with the pigment only (PGBK) is very coarse.

Monochrome printing (not black only) uses color inks along with black and grey. There is no seting to disable this.
