How to make print function print black on white, not white on black
I tried printing a drawing today. It's the first time I've tried to print with Onshape. I tried printing a sketch first, but it printed white lines on a black background, using up about 50 pages worth of black ink in the process. So I tried printing a drawing, thinking that would have to print black on white, but no, I wasted another 50 pages of ink. (it printed white on black again). I looked at the print properties but there is no option to change it that I could see. It is a laser printer so the "color mode" is greyed out. If I choose a colour dot matrix printer I get the option of colour or black and white. I'm not game to try it. The printer belongs to someone else and she already spends a small fortune on printer cartridges for it. She wouldn't thank me for wasting a whole page of black!
How to I print my drawings with black lines on a white background? Laser printer toner cartridges are expensive!
PS I live in Australia where we still spell "colour" the correct way. ;-)
