You can adjust the darkness of the shaded areas on printed forms. Click on the line above None, Light, or Normal to move the sliding lever to the desired location.

Note: If you choose any of the duplex printing options, note that some combinations of operating system and printer cause the back page to print upside down. If this occurs, open the Select Printer dialog and select the appropriate option from the Invert duplex page 2 for field.
