White surface colores appear as grey

How do I get white surface colors to display/print white? I would like to leave the uncut elements setting to Surface - Color Fill, Shaded.

Uncheck this option in the workenvironment. It turns white areas slightly grey on the screen.

If you are referring to elevations or views generated in Archicad where the surface is a white finish, I found dropping the sun angle lower in the settings makes the surface appear whiter but it’s never completely white unless you change the fill to override to a pure white.
