I hadn't really thought about the difference in the fonts and how much ink or toner they use. I don't print much, but for those who do, this is a great tip! Thanks, Linda.

I have used both fast draft and gray scale. Finally I decided to choose a less black color with your document's choice of ink color. Choose one that is a little blacker than gray and you will save even more ink! Most people (unless they have poor eyesight) will be able to read the text even with the color change. Try it - you just might like it!
