Bill,

I performed step 1 till 7. What are the steps to check if anything 
relevant is extremely pixelated?

This plot is created by creating the various graphic elements (fields, boxes, lines), then a snapshot taken, and then the plot elements deleted. The plot image is then the snapshot. This was also shown as pixellated (by the student with the problem), so I think it is most likely a snapshot problem.
