Problem printing normally using High Contrast Black
I am a blind man, and I use High Contrast Black as my theme. In the past, when I would print a document, it would print normally, i.e., black text on a white background. Some time ago, tho, my printer began to print the document as white print on a black background! But here is the strange thing: if I copy and paste my text to Notepad and print, it prints normally as black on white. Both Word 2010, Jarte, and Wordpad will NOT print normall, and I cannot find settings to change this behavior. Please note that to the best of my knowledge, I did NOT change any settings to cause this printing anomaly to begin. HOw can a person using the High Contrast BaBlack teheme arrange it so that documents print out normally, black text on the white sheet of paper?

Same problem - prints white on black - High Contrast
I know this is an old thread, but it is short and appropriate. I now have the vision of a 66 year old life-long systems and applications engineer. I recently decided to experiment using the High Contrast #1 theme provided with Windows 7 (SP1). At the same time, I changed the color scheme in Firefox to be white text on a dark gray background. Jarte now prints white text on a black background. However, OpenOffice Writer and notepad print normally with black text on white.
I returned to using the theme named Windows 7. The white on black printing continues.
In Jarte Plus, I went into Page Setup. I could find nothing that would appear to cause this behavior. Here, I clicked Printer Setup. Again, I could find nothing to explain the behavior. Here, I clicked a button labeled 'Restore Settings'. I also went into Advanced Settings. In the section with sliders to adjust color balance, I clicked 'Restore Adjustments' even though all of the sliders were already in their center positions. I closed out of these dialogs by saving the changes. The printer behavior was unchanged.
The only other changes I made to the display were:
1. I changed the Windows font from Small (default) to Medium in the Display Control Panel
2. I turned off the Aero effect of transparent titlebars.
I do not recall changing anything else relating to the display or to printing. Printing white on black quickly drains the black ink cartridge, as you can imagine.
