Description sixcplus 2007-03-05 08:48:03 UTC
I've always grappled with this problem... hope someone can help.... 

Many of my tables in Writer have a background colour set, sometimes for the 
whole table, and sometimes just for the header. This is just for aesthetics, to 
highlight the table information. I print to a black-and-white laser printer. So 
far, I've set very light colours for the background, so the table background 
shows up nicely... as light grey, while the texts are standard black. 

The problem occurs when I have to fax the document out, either directly from my 
PC, or manually through a fax machine. The standard fax resolution is lower, 
and everything is converted to black and white.... for fax transmission. The 
table background shows up as black dots... and obscures the table text content.

There's a setting to not print the document's _overall_ page background.... but 
is there something similar just for the _table_ background. 

It seems like a useful feature to incorporate.... Pls. improve the future OO 

Thank you.
