Hello Pierpaolo,

Welcome to our forums!
On hardware devices colour inks are usually quite more expensive than black, so that's why all of them will have an option to print in colour or B&W only. However when we 'print' a PDF file - whether we will record that a circle is black or red takes up the same amount of bytes - so there is really no reason for a virtual printer like ours to offer a B&W mode.
However - most applications should be able to themselves send only Greyscale of B&W information to a printer - so please search the options at the other end of the printing process.

Alternatively - once you have created a coloured file with PDF XChange Lite you can open that in the Editor and use the Save as Optimized feature to make sure that at the 'optimisation' process the Editor removes all colours from all types of images.
