Boxes appearing around reduced opacity objects!

Recommended Posts

Mac OS 10.4.11

Vectorworks 2008 Fundamentals.

The reduced opacity option is potentially great!

It works fine when a transparent object is over most things, but when it is over a hatch, it draws a funny reduced opacity box across and up from the object when printed. I have all dpi's set to 300 - document setup and printing.

See Test.vwx and Test.pdf attached

A similar effect seems to run throughout the "What's New" brochure which came with VW 2008 - a bar 2cm from the top of the page on every page - this doesn't look intentional.

I can't find any reference to a previous forum topic relating to this - is it just me?

I can get round the problem by exporting to pdf instead of printing, and then printing the pdf, but this seems unnecessarily arduous.

Any help or clarification would be very welcome....
