    InDesign CS5.5 not exporting to true black

    DE Fleabody Level 1

      When I go to print basic black text straight out of InDesign, it prints dark grey. I'm not getting black: I can see the actual dpi on the paper, the little fuzzy edges. When I print from some other program (say the browser or text editor), the black text is sharp and crisp.


      How can I print from ID and get black?


      Steps to recreate problem:


      - Trash prefs

      - Use text tool

      - Type text

      - Print


      I am running InDesign CS5.5 on MacOSX Mavericks. I'll be glad to answer any further questions to supply info.
