I'm confused then.  A washed out image is the expected behaviour????

How do I get it to be not washed out when going directly to a CMYK
PostScript printer attached directly to the PC that is running
scribus?  I'm assuming if I can export to a PDF with "Output Intended
for:" set to printer and have that work then that would also solve
the printing direct to a CMYK PostScript printer problem.
