It seems the SSMS of Sql server 2012 cannot print the SQL statements with syntax color anymore. Is it a bug? Does it have any workaround?

Honestly I've never tried printing from SSMS before. For a workaround I'd copy and paste the code into Microsoft Word (or some other editor which supports rich data, aka text with color) and print from there.
Are you really printing code that often that the color matters?
The color printing extension for Visual Studio 2010 works just fine for adding the color print ability to SSMS 2012. Download the VSIX package, and unzip into it's own directory in your to your SSMS extensions folder (
After that, restart SSMS, and you'll have the ability to print in color, even if it doesn't look like it.
