n Mac OS 10.4 I could print black & white on my Lexmark Printer. I can't seem to find the solution for the quartz filter using snow leopard 10.6 (everything comes out color even though the same items were selected and modified. Any help one can give me would be appreciated.

    I don't have access to a Lexmark printer but here's a guide as to what to look for.

    When you select print in an application a window opens. If this window has the pointer at the RH end of the Printer line pointing down click on it. The window will expand. You will see a horizontal line with a box on it. As I've been typing this reply in Safari that box has 'Safari'. Click on the arrows and choose something like 'Settings'. The items will differ for different printers. This should then allow you to select B&W or Grayscale. You might have to look around a bit to find the right item to change.

    Let's know how you get on.
