She thinks we all, at one point in time, have tried to customize our editor colors or change keywords to bold or something else, and then pressed the Print button. Yet, we arrive at the printer confused that our changes haven’t been applied.

To customize your fonts and colors for printing, go to Tools–Options–Environment–Fonts And Colors and change the selection in the Show Settings For drop-down list to Printer. Now you can customize your fonts and colors, including bold.

Additionally, let’s say that you’ve already tweaked your colors or just want to use what you see in the editor. Then press the Use button and select Text Editor Settings. The default settings are restored to the original text editor defaults.

Happy Programming! =)
