Cannot change the print settings

I have a new printer, an Epson XP 430. My previous printer was also an Epson. With my old printer, when I chose to print (for a document, web page, etc.) the dialog always had an option to choose, black and white. I also could add to the presets and edit presets.

With this printer, I can see the presets, but I can't make changes. When I click on view Presets, it is not an option for adding a new preset as it was with my old printer and remove and duplicate boxes are grayed out.

I guess that this is due to the printer, not OS X, as I noticed the difference when I started using the new printer. Am I missing something somewhere? I rarely print in color, so I would have a preset that specifies black & white.

Thank you.



Since you have a new printer, you can create new presets. This is done through the printer with the selected printer dialog box, not through the page view Presets. When you select this option to print do the settings that you want to create a preset for and then click on the drop down preset menu. Select "Save current settings as preset" and enter a name for the new preset.

  • Sound problems on computer, cannot change the sound settings

    I had a long-standing problem in the audio settings of the Control Panel on Windows 7 where I can't change settings, configure anything or especially toggle of the devices. The options are there, but they have no effect when selected. Recently, I tried to connect my laptop to a TV, and as I could not set as the default audio device, I finally decided to try to fix things. I deleted and reinstalled the software Realtek my laptop and everything he has done is completely turn off my speakers, and all attempts to reactivate failed them. The unit displays in the control panel as a default active device, but claims of the taskbar that there are no speakers is connected, and if I click to set up the Realtek Audio, I have the same situation that before where absolutely nothing is happening.

    I tried troubleshooting sound problems, and all I get is the statement that an audio device is disabled, no attempt to fix or any option to enable. Apart from a system restore, that in general, I try to avoid, I feel that I have tried everything I can think of to fix this and only managed to make it worse. No help available would be appreciated to receive my laptop back to a functioning State.

  • How can I become an administrator I can change the print settings

    my printer cannot print from the computer, so I downloaded a new player, but he said I had to be an administrator to install. How can I become one.


    1. What is the operating system running on your computer?

    2. your computer is on a domain?

    3A this works much earlier? If so, remember you have changed your computer?

    You log on to the administrator account to have administrative rights, or to check with the administrator of the computer.

    In addition, if the computer is on a domain you must contact your system administrator.

  • Change the printing WillPrint settings

    I see that the WillPrint event is raised after the user dismisses the dialog box print. I have a PDF file where I want to only allow them to print page 1. Can I use the WillPrint event and change the print settings as well as the first page is printed? Thank you very much.


    As try67 says, the event does not work like that.

    WillPrint is exactly like that - he is fired when the user presses the Print button in the print dialog box, so at this time the printout will be no matter what you do with the event. and they have already made their choice on what is happening out of the paper tray. If JavaScript could intercept these choices it caused no end of problems.
