Colored text will not print

Post by apolonio » 17 Dec 2015, 11:08

We just upgraded to Quark 10 from Quark 8. We tried printing several documents. They printed with the exception of text that were red. It is plain text and not an image that was imported. I tried printing to 2 different black and whites and 1 color printer. Got the same result, where the colored text will not print. I also tried exporting to a pdf. The pdf did not show the color text either. If I copy everything and paste to a new document, it will print fine in the black and white and color printers. How can I fix this issue without copying documents which will take too much time?

I think we found out why. The color used was RGB red. We switched to CMYK and it printed fine.
