    How can I change background color of the document I am working on but not have that color print when I print the document?

    Try going to File, Print and see if there is a setting there, it would be something like do not print background.

    I don't use word perfect so I am going by what I have seen in other programs.

    In Word I think it is listed under Tools, Options printing.

    You will have to check the settings for background.

    ALso try background in the help in the program or background printing under help.

    another approach is to set your default print or printer options as b&w or grayscale (depending on the printer - ie print options controls just that document, printer options controls ALL print jobs)

    then even color docs will print b&w unless you go into printer properties specifically to have it print colour
