I prefer a dark background, so I ticked the checkbox in Edit | Preferences | Editor | Display | Invert syntax highlighting colours. However, when I went to print a document, which displayed as white on black on screen, the printer attempted to print it with various light colours on white. So I switched off syntax highlighting (Document | Set File Type | None) and tried again, and this time it printed white on white. While this certainly reduces ink costs over time, it's not necessarily the optimal solution!
I believe the smartest move is to simply not print syntax highlighting at all. But if that's not an option, the next best bet is to ignore the Invert syntax highlighting option and print with whatever colours would have been used if the screen had had a white background.
