Printing background colors and images of Vista diagram in web application

A user may want to print a diagram page including the background colors and images from the Diagrams web application. However, when the user prints the diagram from the web applications, only the diagram objects are displayed. The background images and color are not diaplayed.

The image below left is an example of how a diagram with background color and an image appears in the web applications.

The image below right is the output of printing the same diagram through the web applications. Note that the background color and image is not displayed.



Product Line:
ION Enterprise 5.x, 6.x
StruxureWare Power Monitoring 7.0
Power Monitoring Expert 7.2

This occurs because the “Print Background Colors and Images” option is not checked in the printing page option by default.

The user will need to enable “Print Background Colors and Images”
This can be accomplished in Internet Explorer by performing the following:

  • Enter tools (Alt+x) --> Print --> Print Preview.
  • In print preview, go to page setup (Alt+u) and check the box which say "Print Background Colors and Images”

This will allow you to print the diagram page with the background color and images from the web application.
