macOS Printing (How To) Add Additional Installable Print Options

Adding additional installable print options in macOS

To add installable print options for a printer already setup in macOS:

  1. Open System Preferences and select Printers & Scanners.  Earlier versions of OS X will label this preference pane as Print & Fax:

    System Preferences

  2.  Select the desired Printer under the Printers list, then click the Options & Supplies... button

  3. Select the Options tab and select the installed options from the appropriate drop down menu. This tab will be labeled as Driver in earlier versions of OS X. The number of installable options and format for how options are added is dependent on the printer. This example uses a Ricoh Multi-Function device, which uses drop downs to select the various installable options.  Other printers may use check boxes to select and deselect option.
