I stand by my earlier statement that the following should work assuming that
the printer driver is set to color output (as per an earlier post). If it
is set to B&W, it will come out in grayscale.
TVLCT, rtable, gtable, btable, /GET ; Get current palettes
TVLCT, rtable, gtable, btable
<remember to set_plot back to prior device>
