In trying to print the Easy ribbed Cable Hat, I have had trouble getting anything but a gray print color. For one with failing eyesight, anything but good old black on a white background is very difficult to follow. The pattern as shown on is set with a red background and when I ask to print in black and white, I get a white background, but only light gray printed product. Any way to change this?
