Hi Mark, Thanks for these suggestions! I will try this. The problem is that it isn't just lines that are disappearing - it's regular sized (11pt), black text too.

Since you are running this through Distiller, your settings may be set to down sample too much, thus losing the smaller, thinner details of your page. Try setting your Distiller settings to Press Optimized and see if the lines appear. If they do, then just monkey around with the settings in Distiller until you get an acceptable balance of file size and document fidelity. Also, have you zoomed in on the document in Acrobat? The lines may be there, just not visible until you are at 100%. Hope this helps. markJ -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
