Report writer - how to stop printing the shading

Hi Experts

Please help.

I want to suppress the shading on the report writer/paint so that it is visually easier to read. The shading is black when printing on a black only printer.

This can be done if the report is run using Excel, but is there not a way in the report writer/painter please?

Kind regards

    Try to do this:

    In the report, in the menu options go to: Formatting --> Report Layout ---> Color settings --- > remove the check from the option Standard colors.

      Hi David

      Thank you for your input, I did not find it there but it is now resolved

      I found a setting in the reporting screen. Select print, when the screen comes up, click on Properties. Open the 'output' option.

      Go to suppress colors/shading. Double click on this then check this box if you want to suppress it. Also click the checkbox with 'show selected printing parameters. Continue to print.

      Kind regards
