Hi,

Have a Brother B&W Printer, Model HL 2140.
Their basic (cheaper) laser, B&W printer.

When I used this printer with my old W10 pc, there was an option when going
to "Print" to change the density (darkness) of the printed copy.

Now, when the printer is hooked up to the iMAC, I cannot find any option to
change the print density. Looked everywhere I could think of.
This is true if I print from WORD or anything else.

There should be an option or a slider to adjust this when the printer is
used on the iMAC, shouldn't there be ?
I am pretty sure that I have the latest Printer Drivers from Brother for this Model.
None of the printer options that come up now seem to show one.
Different Print screen than the one that came up under W10.

Any thoughts on how to do this, or where it is "hidden" would be most appreciated.

Thanks,
Bob

Hello, and sorry for the delayed response!

-Which model iMac?
-Which version of OS X?
-Which version of the Brother driver?

Since this is an older printer model, the Mac driver may not have been updated, and some features may not be available. Can you upload a screenshot of the print dialog, so we can see what you are seeing?
