Has anyone else NOT been able to properly print a "Paint" document created in AppleWorks 6.2.2
Everytime I try to print a "Paint" document the document prints out with a "black" background instead of a "white" background. It is as if the image has been inverted or something.
I am using a 600 iMac with 512 MB ram and a HP cp1160 printer connected via usb.

10.1.2 with AppleWorks 6.2.2 and an Epscon 890C. I created a very simple Paint document and told it to print and it did what was expected -- no black to be seen other than what I used in my masterpiece ;-).
What happens if you hit "Preview"? Does it show a black background?

Thanks for the response.
When I select Preview it provides the correct view. I will try to print after sending it to Preview. The other thing that is weird is that even thought the "Paint" document is only a single page, when it is sent to the Print Center it becomes a 2 page document.
I think I will try a reinstal of Appleworks.

You might try trashing the AW prefs first ... and if you had access to another printer somehow, it would help determine if the problem was AW or the HP driver and AW together...

The same thing happens to the Appleworks "paint" document even when printed from "Preview".
This same document can be printed from a HP Laserjet 1220se without a problem other than it is only black and white.
I did delete the AW Prefs file but that did not help either, again thanks for the responses.
I saw over at MFI that some one else had this same problem with a HP970cxi inkjet. I am alos having the same problem with a HP Beta unit I am testing, so I will submit it as a bug there as well. I wonder if all these printers might use the same print driver?

I spoke with HP tech support, and the tech rep actually grabbed a hp1160 printer and hooked it up to his Mac and verified the problem. HP is now looking into the cause and hopefully a fix.

Nice to know that you've found the culprit! I was going to go looking for an HP here at the office and try it myself ;-).
