With Adobe reader 8.1.2 on Windows XP SP2 and a good old Canon BJC-85 with black cartridge, I find it impossible to get a well contrasted and dark print. Always puts out a light grey print, sometimes impossible to read. My printer is OK with Word. Il looks like a problem in image printing but none of the options in the printer menu seem to work.
Thence, my pdf docs are useless unless I convert them to .doc which is pretty cumbersome.
