how to reset user default document to NOT be in econo mode

My printer (HP2100) evidentaly has an economy mode where it prints things in grayscale not black to save ink.

I use Linux and have two machines (self and wife); we can both sign on to either machine. For some reason, my username on my machine AND ONLY that one of the four possibilities has been set to make the default mode for all documents use economy mode. In order to reset it, I must FOR EACH DOCUMENT choose file -> printer settings -> take default printer - HP2100 -> properties -> device -> econo mode then reset from "Save Toner" to the normal default of "Printer's Current Setting"

This mode ONLY appears for me on my computer (else there are two modes here, not three :: for all three other "user" settings).

Can anyone tell me how to reset this mode at the USER level so I don't have to reset it for each an every paper???

(I tried deleting the ~/.config/libreoffice/4 directory to no avail).
