2427213 - Color print not working by a PCL device type


  • A print via a PCL device type is started and in the output device definition, the "Color printer" option is set. However the print output is in black and white without any color. Even the output of a list spool, for example test report SHOWCOLO,  will be printed without color.
  • The PCL print data itself sent to the printer does contain the color information commands.
