I can understand your frustration. This is not an uncommon problem with computer upgrades, hardware and software. For example, newer Apple computers all only have USB-C ports. That means if you had components connected to the old computer via USB-A connectors it is necessary to purchase all new cables or dongle adapters. You printer is an 11 or so year old model ($500 list price). Not sure when or where you purchased for ($1000). You made a conscious decision to upgrade to Catalina. I realize that perhaps you didn't realize that it would disable your printer. Now you need to decide - do the new features in Catalina provide me enough benefit that is worth it to buy a newer printer? If yes, I suggest you look into the Pro-100. Canon frequently runs rebate programs. You can get the printer for $150 or less - less than the cost of a set of ink for printer. If you don't think Catalina is worth it you can revert back to Mojave and get your printer back.

Hello Stellarspace. I am very interested in what you are saying because of the myriad of postings here about folks not being able to access all the features of their Canon printers, and invariably the resolution is that they don't have the Canon IJ Series driver installed but the Apple driver.
Could you post a screenshot of the Apple driver dialogue screen so we could see what it looks like? Thank you.
