Draft Mode?

I'm using Mac OS X and MX922.  How do I print in draft mode? It's greyed out and as a result I'm using much more ink than I can afford.

Re: Draft Mode?

Hi bookkeepingmama,

 

If you cannot select the "draft" option with the current printer driver, before printing, please go to SYSTEM PREFERENCES, then PRINT AND SCAN.  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 instead of AirPrint.  

 

If you still are unable to select the draft option, we ask that you please call 1-866-261-9362, Monday - Friday 10:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. ET (excluding holidays) for further assistance.  A Canon technical support representative will be happy to help.  There is no charge for this call.

I have same problem - won't print in draft mode with Mac OS X and TS5050.  Is there another quick fix for this printer too? Thanks.

Re: Draft Mode?

I just did what was suggested and all that happened is the option to print black and white is no longer available. MB2320. This is the lousiest, useless, noisy, slow and pathetic printer ive ever owned. never will I buy another Canon

Success! The instructions sent back in 2016 (above) worked.
"If you cannot select the "draft" option with the current printer driver, before printing, please go to SYSTEM PREFERENCES, then PRINT AND SCAN. 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.

Re: Draft Mode?

Thank you! I wouldn't have solved this quickly without your help!

The problem occured on a newly installed iMac with a wireless MG53xx printer.

Re: Draft Mode?

Can the printer settings be set to this DRAFT mode as default?
