cloud print limitations that are unacceptable
on October 4, 2014
I realize that most people aren't using a google cloud print with this, but I have a chromebox set up with this for my mother, and it is the only option. What sucks is, there is no option to print in black and white.. This means I will be buying a ton of color ink I don't need. Given this printer has a single cartridge for all colors makes this worse.. once you run out of yellow, you have to replace the cartridge no matter how much is left of other colors. I went into this knowing that a single color cartridge has this issue, but given I have no capability of printing B&W via cloud print, this makes it unacceptable for me.
Cloud print from google does support this option, me research leads me to the conclusion that Canon's drivers for cloud print do not.. which sucks for me.. but not for cannon selling the ink.
I'm going to look some more, although I have spent 90 minutes of web searching.. and I'm pretty convinced there is no solution without a change from cannon.
