How to make a black and white PDF file

When you print files to the SafeQ printing queue and you are outside the OUAS network, you cannot help the fact that the colour files will be printed in colour. In case you want to print more affordable black and white prints, you can make a black and white version of your PDF file:

  1. Open your file in a PDF reader, such as Adobe reader
  2. Choose File… –> Print…
  3. For the printer, choose PDF printer (if this is not available in the list of printers, you need to add it to your printers (*
  4. Select the option “Print in grayscale (black and white)”
    then print a black and white version of your PDF file and send it to the SafeQ printing queue. It is a good ide to name the file so that you can tell it’s the black and white version.

*) In Windows 10, the PDF printer is available, follow this guideline to turn it on if you cannot see the PDF printer in the list of printers on your computer: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/35650-microsoft-print-pdf-turn-off-windows-10-a.html – What comes to other operating systems, you may need to install a suitable printer device driver.
