Saved Drawing Prints White

Post by Jock » Thu Mar 29, 2018 11:16 am

I am using QCAD Pro, I have saved the attached drawing and at the time didn't understand the message regarding printing as white. I have tried few things to change this, but can't seem to get it to print black. Can you advise me on this please.
