Oh, yes — that sparkly green-on-black type, all caps (with inverted colors to indicate caps)! Those were [not] the days. It’s lucky we didn’t go blind.

I wrote a book on such a system, driving first an early Epson dot-matrix printer, and then (oh luxury) a daisywheel typewriter. I had to get the latter because the publisher didn’t accept computer-produced copy.
