    Here is my dillema-I have a PowerPoint presentation with a dark green, magenta and black backgound. There is white type (done within Powerpoint) on most of the slides. When it is printed to a black and white printer, all of the type comes out black on the dark background. Does anybody know if there is a fix to this problem (other than buying Keynote)? I didn't see anything in the print window or the preferences. Thanks for any help anyone can give!

    I believe you can tell powerpoint to print the slides in black and white in the print dialog somewhere. I believe this will make the text black on a white background.

    I have that checked when I print. It still prints the type black on the black background and also shows it that way in the small print preview window. :confused: This is really confusing me.
