I have a late 2009, 27 iMac, 10.8.3.

 

I use InDesign, and I have an Epson Workforce 600 all in one printer.

 

I cannot get the option of printing in draft or economy mode.

 

I do not get the option. I have perused all the variables, and the option to print in draft or ecomony just does not come up. This seems very strange, and from what I have been able to read online, it may be some problem with the OS and Epson.

 

I tried downloading the Epson drive, but it will not install. The Mac says the file is corrupt.

 

Any help out there?

 

Thanks

iMac (27-inch Late 2009), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Curious,

     

    I always used Epson scanners and printers.

    Before you click print, do you use the print or page setup menu option, first?

    Instead of draft or economy names, do you have options that may be called speed print or quick print or fast print mode and a another option that states quality mode?

    Gatekeeper adds Security to your Mac.

     

    It is easy enough to Turn it Off when necessary.

    B. Do you have any ideas if downloading any of the Epson apps will magically solve my problem?

     

    Sorry... not my Forte.

     

    Have you tried Epson Support...

    Are you using Firefox as a browser?

    I have been having this problem, and I have solved it very easily.

    In Firefox, click on help at the top of the page, then click troubleshooting information.

    There will be a box on the right hand side to reset Firefox. Click on this and once it has saved your bookmarks etc, you should find that the plain paper and economy settings will appear in the print menu.
