Remember the other night when my printer was wasting all that blank ink and Vince was not happy with me . . like it was my fault!
Normally, I’m not a destructive person but I can screw up a computer so fast! I mess up the printer, the scanner, the keyboard . . my fairly new laptop is missing a key! One night, I had the laptop on my lap and wasn’t even touching the keyboard and a key just went flying across the room. I saved it for Vince to put back on because I couldn’t make it stay and . . then we moved and maybe it’s in the box with my yarn swift and back handles. Thank goodness, it’s the key at the bottom that says “fn” and I haven’t a clue what that’s supposed to do so I don’t miss it.
Last week when I called Vince downstairs and showed him what was happening when I tried to print a .pdf file, he was so sure I (ME) had messed up something. That’s always what he says . . you have too many windows open, you’re saving it wrong, you’re using an old version of Adobe, the file is too big . . he really does know a lot about computers but he always blames me first. He messed around with it, updated my Adobe and then he told me to save the file under a different name before printing it. Huh? That made no sense to me but I don’t know anything about the computer and I don’t want to know anything about the computer. But, somehow, he made my pattern print last week.
Yesterday I downloaded another pattern (and ordered more yarn), hit print and got this.
Out of frustration, I was just sitting and staring at the computer screen. That always helps. I saw this:
See that bottom box on the left side that’s checked? “Print color as black”. That’s all it was. Someone checked that box. It wasn’t me . . I’m sure of that! 🙂 Chad’s not here and he sometimes used my computer to print. I’ll blame him.
Anyway, I didn’t need to update Adobe. I didn’t need to save the document as something else. I just needed to uncheck that box . . Vince! Who would ever have thought some blasted little box would cause so much trouble?
