Hi,
I have been running a Brother HL-2140 (USB connection) on my old Windows machine without problems. On a Windows machine I could set default printer settings through the control panel, e.g. to use tone saver mode, without having to set it each time I printed. On the Mac I cannot find an equivalent? I have Word and when I go to the print settings I can set what I need - but don't seem able to save them as defaults i.e. reset every time I start the program. On Preview I don't see any options at all, just Print. Under the printer selection it does offer "Presets" which is currently set as "Standard". Is there somewhere I can go to customise the options?
Many thanks...

Set it up the way you want it, click on the arrow next to Standard and select 'Save As'
