Not unless I tweak the shadow color balance slightly before printing. (Actually more like "after printing the first time".) The shift varies with how dry the print is (and paper type, of course.) I wind up either doing each one individually, or living with it. I can't say that I have ever succeeded in eliminating it with Photo Paper, but I can get pretty close with the Heavyweight Matte paper. Also I'm printing on an EX, which is presumably somewhat different than the 1200 that this thread started with. I only chimed in to point out that making final color adjustments for B&W prints is easier with "black & white" RGB files than with grayscale ones, as long as you don't care that they are 3 times as large.
