Hi All,

I have been trying to use the "do not print background"

feature under the [tools], [options] [print] menu.

No matter what I do - nor which type of printer or

printer driver I use - I can not get this feature to work.

I have tried 4 different makes of printer and each having

2 or 3 drivers.

Any ideas?

Thanks

    • It think your right TAJ, I have confused this with

      background printing..

      What I wanted to do was withhold the printing of the

      background "fill" or "image".

      Using Powerpoint 2000 on XP

      Is there any easy way to do this?

    • OK,...that's good

      This background *image* that you do not want to print....is it on the slide

      master?

      or is it on the "format>background>fill effects>picture" instead?

      Is it a black and white printer?

    • Hi Steve,

      If you don't mind your print-outs in black and white,

      checking the grayscale or pure black and white box in the

      print window will exclude printing the background image of

      your slides.

      HTH,

      Glenna

    • Steve, can you tell us what it DOES do? Hard to see from way over here.

    • Steve,

      Could you perhaps be confusing the "do not print in the background" with a

      background image?

      This feature...to the best of my knowledge...tells powerpoint to print in

      the background so you can carry on working. Most windows pcs have this

      feature built in...in the form of the "print queue".

      This background *image* that you do not want to print....is it on the slide

      master?

      or is it on the "format>background>fill effects>picture" instead?

      What version of powerpoint are you using?

      Cheers
