If you're printing on Linux or OS X, which I am guessing you are,
the colors are actually decided independently (printing doesn't
involve the editor at all). That should be true regardless of
whether you're printing directly to printer or to PDF.
Unfortunately, these choices for color can't be altered right
Printing on Windows works completely differently and should use
the editor colors except that the background is forced to white
and that may alter colors if they are not considered distinct
enough to be visible on white. Again, that shouldn't be
different if you print to file or printer.
Of course in either case there's always difference between screen
and print colors but a green should be green, etc, unless of
course you're missing some toner colors. ;-)
If you send an error report from the Help menu w/ error log
included perhaps I can find more detail there.
