It might have to do with the resolution setting in the AdobePDF printer properties. IIRC, too high a setting can cause problems. On the Layout or Paper/Quality tab, click Advanced, and set the Graphic print quality to 600 dpi. Also, if the effect she wants is reverse-colour callouts for a graphic or something similar, there's a simpler way. There's no need to draw a separate coloured rectangle. Just insert a text frame, type the text, tag it with a pgf tag that sets the text colour, then select the text frame and set its fill to the background colour.
