For PSF, when cyan, magenta, and yellow (cmyk) are combined in a certain proportion, the result approximates black. When the color-toner-saver attribute is used, the proportion of cyan, magenta, and yellow are reduced and substituted with black toner, which reduces the amount of color toner used. This option only applies to non-cmyk PostScript (for example, RGB) for which a color rendering dictionary (CRD) is used to determine the cmyk values to use.
For CUPS destinations, enable this setting to pass to the underlying printing system the corresponding driver option which prints using a reduced amount of toner when printing out copies. Print results are lighter in density than normal. For more information, see "Mapping Attributes and Values to PPD Options" in the InfoPrint Manager for Linux: Getting Started.

You can enter one of these fixed values:
|Fixed Value||Input Synonym|
For CUPS, a value of true or yes maps the corresponding driver option which prints using a reduced amount of toner when printing out copies.
There is no default value.
- For PSF, if a document is already ripped, changing this attribute at the printer does not effect the document. To change a ripped document, modify the job and document properties to specify the new value. When released, the document is re-ripped automatically.
- Setting color-toner-saver to True or Yes results in less vibrant process colors.
