so still learning my way around with the 3800.

here is the question.

i was printing photos on matte paper with the matt black ink.

i needed to print something off the internet . in my aol i went to print setup and chose my regular paper setting i created for use on plain paper and had a choice of matte black ink or photo black.

not wanting to swap out the ink i picked matte black.

hit print and next thing i see is switching to photo black.

i am not sure why the printer defaulted back to the photo black.

i am thinking that in a windows based system your every day printing is controlled by going into control panel, picking printers, properties and printing preferences and doing the selection there.

by right the aol print set up should have let me select the matte black ink as it showed but in practice it does not seem to work like that.

i am guessing any printing of letters on regular paper is controlled only through the default settings in control panel and no where else.

i son't want to waste all that ink trying it again so i am curious now if anyone else ran into this.
