Inkscape file prints blank

Postby jtragic » Mon Nov 13, 2017 12:28 pm

This has been asked a bunch of times before but I cannot get my file to print.

I'm running Win 10, and .92.2 32 bit version. I've already installed, deleted and reinstalled both .91 64 bit and .92.2 64 bit, nothing has worked.

This is a new file I'm trying to print using a new install of Inkscape. My prior computer was using the 32 bit version .91 and files created on that computer printed fine. On this install they print all black.

Anyone have any thoughts?
TIA

Can you share an example file? And perhaps a screenshot of your printer settings, a photo of the printout (if there is something on it...) and the page size you're trying to print on?
The black printing bug has been fixed for 0.92.

"black" or "blank"?

(was asking jtragic for clarification - said blank in title but black in message)

Right - sorry! The black printing issue though should be resolved if you're using Inkscape 0.92 (please check your version number again in Help > About).
