Okay, had to go back to another PC with SE 7.2.9 to see what you're seeing. So when you get SE 7.3.x in a few weeks it has the views I've shown above.

When attempting to print a wiring diagram, I select the full page and it shows the print preview image on the screen as a Black & White image with a check mark that has to be removed each time if I would like to print in color. I would like to set the default to Color and avoid having to un-check each diagram for color printing.

Here is the response regarding printing question:

"We created the current experience because people complained about the cost of color ink cartridges."

I know, but you'd be amazed how many calls we got.

Maybe make it a sticky setting so that users can choose one and never have to change it? I too find it annoying that I have to uncheck that box EVERY time.

If it was a desktop app, it would be pretty simple. I believe the printing attribute in a browser is problematic or we'd have that option. I did hear that it *might* be possible to discern what type of document and print appropriately. (thinking B/W for repair info + color for diagrams as example)

I had a feeling. If it's a one page diagram I pull it up on the 32 inch screen.

Multi page diagrams are a different story.

I'm the same way. I have a 32" at my tool box. I would rather look at a wiring diagram on that than a small piece of paper.
