Hi
is it possible to print in color from e.g: ms word in win-os/2.
The printer works in the color mode, but the printout is only black and white?

I have printed, in colour on my HP Deskjet, from OS/2 Warp 3.
I was _NOT_ using MS Word; I used a "native" OS/2 application.

    ProgrammManager
      Win-OS/2-Zubehör
        PaintBrushPicture
          Utensilie 'abc'
          Palette red
            'This Text is red'
          Datei
            drucken
              [ok]
        Datei
          beenden
            [nein]
      Schliessen
    Win-OS/2 beenden
      [ok]
  Scliessen
