The procedure for printing a color document in monochrome is as follows:

 You can also set grayscale printing in Additional Features on the Quick Setup tab.

  3. Click OK.
    When you execute print, the document is converted to grayscale data. It allows you to print the color document in monochrome.

 When the Grayscale Printing check box is checked, the printer driver processes image data as sRGB data. In this case, actual colors printed may differ from those in the original image data. When using the grayscale printing function to print Adobe RGB data, convert the data to sRGB data using an application software.

 During Grayscale Printing, inks other than black ink may be used as well.
