    "Black" text printing dark grey

    DE Fleabody Level 1

      Hey folks,

       

      I have been having this issue for a few years now and haven't figured out the solution. It wasn't the case when I first bought InDesign; somewhere along the way a setting or something got changed and it's been messed up since. I just subscribed to CreativeCloud a week ago and hoped the problem would be fixed, but it wasn't. Not sure what to do - at a loss and at my wit's end.

       

      When I print from any app other than InDesign, black = black.

       

      When I print from InDesign either directly or a PDF I exported from InDesign, black somehow gets translated to dark gray, and the result is that solid black = dots.

       

      I am sure this is elementary, but I haven't found anything online to solve the problem.

       

      Thanks in advance!
