OK I see now I have to have Managed by printer before these settings are enable ... but with certain .ICC B&W profiles I use, I need both application managed and driver managed selected at the same time. I used to be able to do this. Is this still possible?
The B&W .ICC I'm using is from Eric Chan's website. They require both applicaiton managed and driver managed printing, at the same time.
Hi, are you printing from a Mac?
Yup using a Mac and Mavericks. Found out it's the way it is now on the Mac. Printed using the driver's ABW mode and I can't tell if it's any less better than doing it any other way, so I'll continute printing B&W using ABW Epson driver mode.
I don't know if this video will help you but about half way through it tells how's and why's using color profiles in Photoshop, which I imagine are similar to Lightroom, in order to make the most accurate prints. This is the better route to go as opposed to allowing the printer to interpret the colors.

After viewing the video myself, what I gather is that you should have Lightoom manage the color settings, and the printer manage the paper settings. If you do it this way, then the printer cannot also manage the color settings, so they will be purposely disabled (grayed out in the dialog box), as you cannot have two drivers giving the printer direction. The video goes really in-depth.
Hope this helps.
