Hi:
I have installed Productivity Tools as suggested somewhere in VA forums. I cannot get VS2017 to print out that beautifully formatted VA text to a paper printer. I have worn out google looking for an answer. Can anybody help me ???

TIA

Printing VA colors is not supported. One workaround is to use copy to clipboard which does support VA colors. If you then paste to an editor that support colors, such as Windows' WordPad, you can then print the result in colors.

Is it possible at all to print in color from VS2017 at all (ignoring VA stuff )? . I had it working (somehow) in VS2013 ...

Thanks for your forbearance with me ...

I did a quick test and it seems that you can only print basic colors, not advanced symbol coloring.
