Outlines on text Print very faint & washed out

Is there some configuration for sequence of layering between the text fill and the text out line whereby I might print very bold dark contrasting text outlines.

I have loads of Black ink but the outlines just print out as a washed out gray. Anyone have a work around for solving this problem?

Thank you,

Peterg

Can you give us a picture of what you mean?

You can adjust the width of the outline, as well as select any color combination for text and outline.

What exactly are you trying, and what is printing?

You need to move the cursor to a darker color by clicking on the eye dropper. The  dropper will become stronger in color. Move the circle to desired color.The strength is changed by how wide it is make.

Another option is to duplicate text change it to black or whatever color and size it a little larger.

I am attempting Your line #3 and #4 with a drop shadow. Looks great in TC7; however when I print it that dark Black thick outline prints as a washed out gray color, Its as if there is some conflict with the gray drop shadow. If I do an over print and shut the drop shadow off and the fill color as well I get better results and black prints  deep and darker. Its a printing issue, I believe. Thank you for your response

Yes Thank you I have the proper software configuration But printing hard copy is where I get the problem of washed out blacks that become gray.

Shouldn't that be controlled by your controls for your printer?  For instance the "Photo" setting???What OS are you?
