    Track Changes - Colors (XP/2002)

    We have an instance of a user who was using track changes and noted that the color for his edits changed from blue, on the screen, to purple on the printed copy. (As far as we know, the printer cartridge is fine). Anyone have any insight as to what the problem may be? Thanks.

    Some blues print out as purple depending on the printer and printer driver. Word is pretty ordinary when it comes to specifying print colours accurately and all output needs to be converted from RGB to CMYK.

    Does the user get purple if they create a coloured box in the same blue in Word and print that out? If so perhaps explore upgrading the printer driver.
