I want to get rid of the Shaded area that prints on every page of plain text in the new document I'm creating in InDesign. Harder to read drafts and wastes printer ink! This did not occur with previous documents I've created in InDesign.
In the Print dialogue box, an image appears with a lavender-purple shaded area with a large "P" in the interior of the page size. I don't see any options within all the options/menu in which to change that; besides, I don't know what it would be called. I need to print and examine some hardcopies of several pages before converting to PDF. Perhaps something has changed in MS updates or InDesign updates...?
Thanks for any help.
Not using thumbnails. I'm in the document; I've chosen page 13 to print; I've changed various options in the Print dialogue options. Gray shading does NOT show up on the pages I've created in the document. I have not even begun inserting the images. I've been importing text/chapters (as is my habit). Want to get a close up look at the text [hard copy] before importing images & adding captions, etc. The gray shading of the full page of plain text is annoying. It does not appear on the screen.
Any other ideas? Thanx
Just for kicks, I converted this partial document to a PDF. Now the gray shading of each & every page appears on the screen! How did this happen? Where is this coming from?
I need to eliminate it from InDesign document, but I did not put it there. Help, please.
Gladly. I see the using PrtScrn does not work cuz it doesn't recognize it as an Image.
How can I show you? I've pasted the PrntScn into a word doc, but that doesn't insert either. (You can see that this is my first time asking for Help from the Community, altho I've read many others which have been helpful.)
Looks like Windows, so Paint would have worked, or Photoshop, if you have it, for an image editing program. Perhaps I shold have been more specific.
I'd like to see the screen capture for the Setup pane of that dialog, though. It's the next one down in the list on the left.
AH-HAA!!! (Good thing my full name is not attached -to prevent embarrassment! I've never heard of or seen "Simulate Paper Color," in all my years...)
I found it and saw that it was indeed ON. Turned it off and printed a page from the new [problem] document under construction, and viola --plain white background!! ya-hoo!
I am overwhelmed with gratitude to both of you for persistently trying to solve this problem for me. Now I have to be sure the gray shading does not appear when I'm finished creating and ready to convert the whole project to a PDF -so I may return in a week or two.
Thank You! Thank You!
