Description bruce 2021-02-02 16:05:29 UTC
The Background Color tool (wonderfully) retains its last-used setting for a quick poke to re-use. After returning from Print Preview, that preset reverts to its default yellow.

To re-create:
- use Background Color tool to set a cell to any color other than default yellow
- see cell changed color
- see color band under Background Color tool icon changed to same color
- Print Preview
- close Print Preview
- see color band under Background Color tool icon changed to yellow
- poke Background Color tool
- see cell changed to default yellow
