I have a now 30- page document on my computer that is in black at present; I want to try printing it in NOT black ( if for no other reason than to "preserve" my black cartridge as it is a LOT of printing), but perhaps in dark blue or whatever;
PRESUMABLY(???) if I change the font colour on the document itself,( MAY need " guidance" with THAT!!!) it SHOULD then PRINT in that new colour, OR, do I ahve to "instruct" my printer to print with the new colour???
How to change the font colour depends in the program used to create/view the document.
In Word there is an button A undelined with a red bar and a small arrow to the right of it. Click on the arrow and select the colour. It should then print the document in this colour.
However as Cook2 says black is the cheapest colour to buy, if you use another colour you would have to relpace the colour cartridge (more expensive than the Black) and also waste ink of the other unused colours.
I"ve managed to print this lengthly document in blue; but will "experiemt" with changing the font colour (perhaps on a smmller document!!!); problem, iS, I"ve actaully changed my black cartrdge more often that the colour one, so thought I could actually get some use out OF th colour cartridge with a document that coulour does not matter on ; it is a LONG document, and constantly growing......and needing printing to keep up WITH its onmtinual growth; hense the need TO print IN different colours TO try and equally utilise the cartridge...... ( so there is more than one reason for my madness IN wanting TO print in colour!!!)
