When printing an ABAP list in LOCL mode, on certain printers the grayscale backgrounds of fields print as slashes ////// and others print as crosshatched.
For example, on a Canon 2200 printer,
this code prints as crosshatched background behind the text:
WRITE: / 'INSTALLATION:', 15 GSTR_REP-ANLAGE COLOR 6 INVERSE ON.
This code prints as slashes in background, behind the text:
FORMAT COLOR 5. WRITE 'Write some text'. FORMAT COLOR OFF.
On an HP 8150 printer, the same report prints a grayscale background for the color 5 example, and a plain background for the color 6 example. It does not matter which output device is chosen, the output is the same.
Any ideas on how to resolve this, so the report prints the same way on all printers?
