I see. Well, I hope we get a printing theme then. I do indeed use pure
black as my background, so I take your point. When I use other apps to
print it does the predictable thing and gives me black print on white
paper, but I can see how that might go horribly wrong if one expects
colored output. Mind, I don't get anything at all, pure white pages
spit out of the printer.

Really? Only Geany has that problem. Could it be that somehow the
wrong printer driver is being called? I've often wondered about
that--different apps display different sets of choices as to printer
setup and you'd think they'd be the same for all. But maybe it's not
Geany's issue, as you say.
