Google Chrome 5.0.375.86

To reproduce the problem, try printing something that has background colors. The colors do not print.

Hello,

I am having the same issue with 6.0.472.53. In particular, I am trying to print the following color-coded table and am having no luck: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Electronic_colour_code

I finally took a screenshot of the page, saved as a raster file, and printed that in color just fine. Not ideal, but it worked.

Google Chrome: 6.0.472.53 (Official Build 57914)
WebKit: 534.3
V8: 2.2.24.19
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US) AppleWebKit/534.3 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/6.0.472.53 Safari/534.3
Command Line: /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome

Thank you,
Zach

In all the posting about this issue, I have yet to see any response from Google. I wonder why that is. This fault is so glaring that I would think a response would be warranted. Hey Google... what's up?

I think someone from Google should reply on this issue. Someone should at least give an answer when people can expect the fix. Chrome is great browser but this kind of problem makes it immature browser for professional use where printing properly is the most important thing.

It seems google are quite happy to be the ONLY browser that cant do this.
How weird.

Perhaps they think it's some kind of feature?

If you want this feature added, vote for it by going to http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=2294 and clicking the empty star to the left of "Issue 2294". I think only large numbers of votes will make the difference in prioritization.

Temporary workaround - though I can't stand MS Explorer, if you select the option to print background colors, MSIE will at least get the job done for you till Google gets around to fixing this.

I'm stunned this issue is still around.

Total deal breaker for using Chrome.

We use OsCommerce and all the invoices and packing slips use background colours to create the boxes/tables/lines.  If we try to print from Chrome it looks terribad and like an unformatted invoice.

This would have to affect everyone who prints from an OsCommerce based store.

Honestly, I try to use Chrome...and every bloody time there is some mission-critical deal breaker that prevents me from switching from Firefox to Chrome.

FYI....Firefox prints the background colours with no problems at all.

Need to be able to print background colors in Chrome (17+)? You gotta put -webkit-print-color-adjust: exact; on the element.

Adding CSS to a site is NOT a solution. It should be an easy option in print dialog. Like all other browsers. I am using Chrome 19.0.1068.0 dev, and it STILL won't print backgrounds.
