Printing from PowerShell Studio

To help you better we need some information from you.

*** Please fill in the fields below. If you leave fields empty or specify 'latest' rather than the actual version your answer will be delayed as we will be forced to ask you for this information. ***

Product, version and build: PowerShell Studio 2018 v5.5.150
32 or 64 bit version of product: 64bit
Operating system: Win 10 (1709)
32 or 64 bit OS: 64bit

*** Please add details and screenshots as needed below. ***

Found an annoying issue when I printed a script today from within PS Studio. White colored font characters, which look great on the dark screen, do not show up on printed paper. Tried both color and black printing. The white colored fonts disappear in both formats.

Is there a way around this without having to change font colors under options?
Or is this a feature request? It would be nice if the application automatically formatted the document to be friendly for both color and/or black printing. If there's an easy to do this, please let me know.

The print command uses the color settings of the editor to print the document. We will investigate, but for now I recommend switching to a Light theme before printing.

Thanks David!
This is a great work-around.
Print looks good using the Visual Studio 2013 Light skin setting.
