Hello,

I've always grappled with this problem... hope someone can help....

Many of my tables in Writer have a background colour set, sometimes for the whole table, and sometimes just for the header. This is just for aesthetics, to highlight the table information. I print to a black-and-white laser printer. So far, I've set very light colours for the background, so the table background shows up nicely... as light grey, while the texts are standard black.

The problem occurs when I have to fax the document out, either directly from my PC, or manually through a fax machine. The standard fax resolution is lower, and everything is converted to black and white.... for fax transmission. The table background shows up as black dots... and obscures the table text content.

There's a setting to not print the document's _overall_ page background.... but is there something similar just for the _table_ background.

It seems like a useful feature to incorporate.... Can someone point the way for me?

Thank you in advance![/b]

I don't think so but wait for additional replies, perhaps someone will have an idea.
Can't you modify the fax resolution when you've such tables ?

Thanks, Hagar, for taking the time to reply. I've scoured the OO help pages before posting in this forum... hoping but didn't really expect an instant solution.

Well, can you tell me how to submit this issue to the OO tech guys, to update in future versions?

Thanks, hol.sten. I've just submitted the issue to the OO developers as a possible future enhancement. It won't solve my problem now... but at least, other users may get this useful feature in their later releases....

You can post the link in this thread and add the tag '[Issue]' at the beginning of your first post title (use the edit button in the header of the first post). This way, you can drag some attention to this request and perhaps get votes for it.
