Problem with e-books

This week I purchased an e-book, from this site, from Yvon Bourque, titled "Pentax K70". I now have two problems with this purchase:
1- He advertises the ability to print the book. I wanted page 74. I do not have the capability nor desire to print in color, so the "blue" text cannot be read when I print it. I also am unwilling to pay Abode for the ability to change the font colors in their pdf.s. (I know, that is a "me" problem Which leads to the 2nd problem.
2- I posted a query/reply to the link for purchase and have received no response. I am aware of the policy and am not asking for a refund. I just would like to at least have someone respond to my query.

I understand the reason for the "blue" denoting an internal link but would like to be able to print usable portions of the book. Overall I feel the book will be very helpful. I always have purchased after-market books for each camera. (K10, K30, K70)

You should be able to print the page in BW, see your printer settings. Different colors just produce different shades.

You can print in b&w simply by selecting it in printer settings when you select print.

As above. Depending on your print dialogue, the option you want may appear as print colors in gray scale

Well, obviously you can teach an old dog new tricks. Thanks to all for pointing out what should have been obvious to me. Once again, I am glad to be a part of a forum with genuine help, not criticism.
