Excel 2016 high contrast printing problems RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using Excel 2016, with the computer in high contrast mode, leaves a lot to be desired.

    1. If using Windows 7 high contrast, cell borders to not print out, even when explicitly set to solid.  This bug does not affect Windows 10.

    2. The "automatic" font color is chosen to be yellow.  This is unnecessary as even when the font is explicitly set to black, it still displays as yellow on the screen.  However, the result is that the fonts PRINT as yellow, which on a white paper is basically unreadable.

    In my opinion high contrast should not affect printer output at all.  Those who use high contrast do not print onto black paper, so trying to use high contrast setting for the print output is nonsense.

    Both bugs have been confirmed when using multiple brands and models of printers, and even occur when printing to PDF.
