Default Printing Drop shadow problem

Have just upgraded from PP X5 to X7. Have imported BMP onto page and given it a Drop Shadow. It all looks OK and prints fine in B/W. However, on printing on my Oki 510 colour laser machine the illustration shows with large coloured outline around the image. See the attachment to explain. The page background is green to start with.

In the end, I had to delete the image and re-import and not give it a drop shadow.

Any ideas on this please. Thanks. Pete

The actual PagePlus file would help for diagnosing the problem. Is it OK if you publish to PDF and print from that using AdobeReader?

It would be best to stick with your thread in Community Plus where you can follow up after this forum closes tomorrow.
