OS X: Printing in grayscale #

A quick search turned up a number of guides on how to print in greyscale under OS X, but they all entailed saving to PDF first and then opening in Preview. The following method worked directly from the print dialog in Snow Leopard (image) with a printer driver that did not include a native grayscale option:
  1. Paper Type/Quality
  2. Color Options
  3. Grayscale
  4. Black Print Cartridge Only
For easy access in the future, just click the "Presets:" pop-up menu and save as "grayscale" or what have you.
