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.

I'll stop saying Microsoft is arrogant when
Windows stops saying "Welcome" and instead asks "May I?"
