RE: Color in PDF - Printing in black&white

With newer versions of Distiller (or the full Acrobat suite)
the Adobe PDF printer driver has a Printer Properties option
to print in color or black & white, but this approach still
renders blue text as gray.

What you really need to do is create a template file that
contains redefined formats for your cross-references, and
then use File>Import>Formats to import those non-colorful
definitions into the files of your book before making the PDF.
Or if you defined a character tag that is uniquely used in
your cross-reference formats to make the x-refs blue, you
can redefine that character tag in one file and then import
its character formats into all the other files of your book.

My opinions only; I don't speak for Intel.

Hi framers

The xrefs in my document are blue so users will know they are links in the PDF.
This looks great online, but the problem arises when the document is printed in black and white (which is what most users will do; we are delivering online manuals only).
The xrefs come out grey and are difficult to read.

How do I generate the PDF so the links print as black? Is there a way?
