I've created a form using Indesign then filled it in using Adobe Reader. For some reason my ticks in my tick boxes are printing grey and when I saved a filled PDF. They are black on screen and I've double checked using Acrobat that the ticks are black. How do I get them to print black? Thanks

The normal procedure is the create the form in InDesign, export it as an Interactive PDF and fine tune it in Acrobat Pro.

Thanks Derek. Do you know why the ticks become grey instead of the black it is set to when it's printed? It also happens when you save the filled interactive PDF as a PDF. I have checked the tick boxes in Adobe Acrobat and they are set to black.

Presumably you mean a Check Box, I just tested one on mine and it came out black. Maybe you should redo yours and see if it comes out black this time.
