Description philipp.lohmann 2009-11-02 15:30:31 UTC
The new print preview introduced in CWS printerpullpages needs to paint on a
white background always; currently it ends up showing black on black in high
contrast mode (or any dark theme for that matter).

changed: print preview has white background now (since 99% of use cases print on
white paper that's the best assumption).

In high contrast mode however, the preview takes the system window background
color as its background; if that color is dark, all colors in the preview
content that are black or dark get replaced by white; this should accommodate
the high contrast mode users.

@PL: please consider this mechanism looking at the existing accessibility
option: "Tools - Options - - Accessibility - [X] Use system
colors for page previews".

Behavior should be:
1. The A11y option is checked -> The print preview sticks to the system
appearance (i.e. white on black when the system is in HC black = NOT WYSIWYG)
2. The A11y option is NOT checked -> The print preview shows the colors which
will be printed = WYSIWYG without taking care of the system colors.
