Legacy project problem

Thanks for the kind offer.  I'm running an Intel MacBook and a G4  
MacBook, both with OS X.  I tried the Legacy Save on both machines.  I  
don't have a native system 9 to try.  I'm going to muck around a bit  
more and see what comes up, and if I get no results or further  
suggestions from the list, I may need your help.  Is it possible that  
there's an issue with a transparency or something of the sort (don't  
think I have any here, but maybe)?  Must one remove modern features to  
build backwards functionality?
