How to have a Word and PDF Document show off-white, ivory or light gray background on screen but automatically print on paper as white?
Motivation behind it: On screen its better and easier to read with lesser contrast with an ivory, off-white, light gray background, but have a normal print of the same on plain paper - whatever it may be.
I'd like to have this happen after the document is sent out to others and they may not play with the options but mostly see on screen and print sometimes.
I am trying to play with this and see..
- If there was some way to do it
- If Word/ Acrobat and printers would do some of it by default if the variation from white is not large
- If there was some way to trick/ hack the document to make it happen.
It is quite possible that there is no real way to do this and I might have to just go with a very small variation from white to be suitable for both - screen and print.
I am just curious if an anyone has any thoughts, suggestions, ideas, experiences or hacks?
PS: I know that this can be done easily with HTML and CSS documents. I am wondering if there was some way or "work around" for DOC/ PDFs to do this.
I saw this thread also and I figure there is some other way out as the documents will be sent out and I'd like for the Screen vs Printing to be seaml - ??
