When you print a colored background with Microsoft PowerPoint to an ImageWriter or ImageWriter II, the slide prints with a white background.

This behavior occurs because the QuickDraw driver prevents printing the colored background in order to allow objects within the slide to appear.

If you want a colored background, fill a box with the desired color and send it to the back of the slide.
