Love the blackboard however, I wish there was a way to export the pages with the black background to a pdf... (If there is a way pls let me know! )

Every time I use the macro, it changes the text color to white. Is there any way to avoid that?
My pages are set up to have a grey background and blue text. Every time I apply the macro, text is turned to white. Default text is set to blue, so it doesnt't respect that.
