I create worksheets for my classes with AI. These usually consist of pictures in color and text. I have the following problem on Mac when printing with my laser printer Brother L8900-CDW:
Using the postscript emulation driver for my printer and printing pure text files in black, printed text looks fine when created with AI on Mac.
However, if I use any color other than black, the text becomes rasterized (not 100% sure this is the right definition of my problem) and colors of pictures are off, which is why the postscript driver would only be an acceptable solution for black text-only documents.
So on the Mac with the postscript driver black text is fine, anything else is way off. With the standard driver on my Mac, text is very bad while graphics and colors are normal.
The problem only occurs when printing ai-files or pdf-files from AI; when I print a pages-files, it looks fine.
On Windows everything works fine with the standard Brother driver (non-postscript); with the postscript driver I get the same bad results like on the Mac.
I thought I could just transfer the ai-file created on my Mac to my Windows computer before printing, but the result is as bad as on the Mac.Only when I create a completely new ai-file on my Windows computer, the printouts are fine.
I have already tried printing from the Adobe pdf reader without any better results.
Does anyone know of a solution?
I don't want to redo all my work on my Windows computer.
