    I doubt it... not enough money involved that they could earn...

    It fascinates me how they are able to screw up so many printers/scanners etc. with an macOS Upgrade.

    I think I still have some Ink for refilling the cartridges of the StyleWriter injets we had, hidden away in a box in the basement.

    Nothing new there Patrick. Printer and scanner manufacturers prioritize their drivers for Windows, not the Mac. Even very old ancient printers continue to work in Windows but long ago abandoned for the Mac.

    Actually I'm surprised my HP 1012 LaserJet still works with Catalina considering it's close to 15 years old.

    Patrick, Apple is not unique in that capability. MS did that to me several times. But it's not Apple or MS that is the culprit, it's the printer manufacturers who don't want you to keep using old printers, so they slow-roll updates to drivers for older devices.

    Its the same with external monitors. None of them have been manufactured by Apple. Just about all of them have been re-badged Samsung monitors. I believe that all of the internal displays for Macs with built-in displays have their display panels made by LG.

    An interesting bit of trivia... Just before Steve Jobs returned to Apple, a deal had been worked out for Hewlett Packard (HP) to be the new manufacturer of all Apple-branded printers. Then Steve came back and took over as Apple CEO. He talked to the folks at HP, and somehow managed to really pis s them off. (Steve wasn't the most diplomatic person.) The deal was cancelled, and for years after that HP's support for Macs was dismal. Even to this day HP has had a horrid reputation for providing up-to-date drivers for Mac's in a timely fashion when needed.

    If you read through the thread you will see that Canon's latest drivers for the original poster's printer don't support Catalina.

    I'm really happy with VueScan for my Pixma Pro 100.
