text is blacked out when printed

Asked by Roger Wilke on 2018-02-06

Text looks okay when on screen but when I print it out it is a black square. Rest of the page is fine including a circle image on the same page.

Please uninstall Inkscape, and install Inkscape 0.92.2 from the website (do *not* just update!):
https://inkscape.org/releases

Reason (guessed, because information isn't given):
You are using Windows. You have downloaded the 64bit version of Inkscape. You are using Inkscape 0.91. You are using transparency or filters that create transparency (e.g. blur) in your drawing.

There is a bug for Windows with Inkscape's 0.91 64bit version which causes partially transparent areas to print as black.

Can you help with this problem?
