FoxIt reader is ignoring XP printer defaults

Hi Everyone,

I am using FoxIt Reader (3.2.0.0303) a free PDF reader, similar to Adobe Reader.

Although the program is quite good at opening PDFs it is ignoring printer defaults. I have Windows XP set to print in Black & White (through Start --> Printers & Faxes) and every time that I print a PDF it is coming out in colour.

This strange behaviour is limited to FoxIt, other programs, such as Excel & Word are respecting the XP printer defaults.

If you have any ideas on how this can be fixed they will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time.

Kind Regards,

Davo

    Foxit Reader can not support printing in Black & White correctly even if the printer has the feature. But it will not appear in the next versions which will be released in the near future.
