I created a form from the employment application template-light tan background.
When I saved as pdf and then printed out the form the background color was not present and only printed in black and white.
I tried another template with lots of color and noticed that the background color when printed is lighter than what is on the screen. Any suggestions?
When you go to print, be sure you've turned on color printing for your printer, by clicking the "properties" button in the Reader/Acrobat print dialog. The properties dialog that comes up will be specific to your printer, but it should have an option somewhere to turn on color printing.
