Color. This is the default. It sends the data to the printer assuming that color
will be used. When you use this setting with a black-and-white printer, it results
in slides with grayscale or black backgrounds. Use this setting if you want the
handouts to look as much as possible like the on-screen slides.

mize the printout for viewing on white paper.
Pure Black and White. This format hides most shadows and patterns, as
