From my Macbook Pro (10.5.1), the print dialog has no grayscale option (screenshot below).

I opened settings, and there is a color option in each Preset. The Presets are read-only.

I guess I am supposed to click Duplicate and edit a copy, but the Duplicate button is disabled (screenshot at bottom), regardless of which of the three Presets is selected.

How do I print in grayscale or black-and-white?

To set Grayscale printing, click Layout, then Quality & Media. Not the most obvious choices in an OS famed for UX!
