When I try to print my Sourcecode from Visual Studio 11 RC, the Code gets printed as white on black, not the other way around. I tried searching for it in Enviroment- Colors- Printer, but I don't see anything wrong there.

The header of the pages is fine, just the code is wrong.

I use a dark skin, but that shouldn't make a difference for the printing? I also tried "Use Defaults" in the color settings for Printer and Text-Editor.

EDIT: It seems to work now if I choose the light skin and restart VS. If I switch back to the dark skin, it again doesn't work.

Does it happen to all file types (*.cpp, *.h, *.cs, *.pas, *.txt...)? Did you try to print to pdf, for example to PDFCreator? Did you reset settings (tools > import/export settings > reset)? –  kokbira Aug 10 '12 at 15:53
See my edit. I tried resetting the settings, no luck. Yes, I tried printing to pdf. –  Juri Robl Aug 10 '12 at 15:55
Nice to know you found a way to print, although you could not do it on dark skin... –  kokbira Aug 10 '12 at 20:39
No, I use the windows standard skin. Notepad printing works fine, no wrong colors there. –  Juri Robl Aug 10 '12 at 20:41
