Maintaining the dark background for print

Hi everyone,
My first post here,
I’m using Kicad 5.1.8 with the Dracula dark theme (dark background) in windows10 OS, problem is when I’m printing out the schematics in Eeschema (as a PDF file) the background turns to white…all the components, traces etc are maintaining the theme’s defined colors…I was wondering if there’s a trick to keep that dark background for printing.
I appreciate your assistance.

Version 5.1 isn’t so advanced with color themes. In 5.99 (the unstable development version) it’s possible to select another color theme for printing.

Normally printing large black areas is avoided (for printing anything) because it eats huge amount of ink or color powder.
