Mark, thanks for your input. I haven't done any of those things, though I am always "adjusting" colors of one sort or another while using MacDraft. And that's never caused me any problem before. I'm a beta tester for MacDraft, so I do have a query into them, but I'll only get the opinion of one or two people there.

I'll take a look at the property you mentioned, but don't have very high hopes of a resolution there.

Thanks, again,

Joe Wilkins

Suddenly, with no apparent changes to any of them, or the application in which they have been created, the light gray fills are printing as a light green. Is it possible that a virus has caused this anomaly? Since my eyesight is so poor, I didn't even realize this had happened at first. I've discarded every other possible resolution of the problem. This transpired pretty much over night. Yesterday everything was OK. Today not so. I've restarted, but have not reinstalled anything yet.
