I hit this problem once. When a field is covered by a transparent
object, the engine uses the screen bitmap underneath the transparency
for printing rather than rendering the field text as a font. This is due
to some weird behavior with graphics drivers or something; I can't
remember exactly what. But that's why you can print what you see on
screen, and why it is printing at screen resolution (i.e., bitmapped.)

If another object overlaps a field, the cursor can disappear. Check to
make sure there isn't anything over that field. Also make sure the
traversalOn is set to true for the field.

Combination of things, sounds like. ;)
