    My computer was reimaged a few weeks ago. I print to LOCL instead of identifying a specific SAP printer since I travel so much from location to location. Since the reimage, the formatting (text in blocks of color) is coming through to the printouts instead of them being simple black and white. Any idea where to go in my computer’s setup (outside SAP) to fix this?
