Importing simple graphics as objects isn't usually recommended because it uses Microsoft's OLE mechanism. OLE has a reputation for flakiness... such as totally breaking down when XP SP3 was installed (although the mechanism was working OK with FM9) and also requiring more system overhead. Without knowing the details, I'd suspect that there may be something wrong with your OLE setup.
In any case, if you use the more routine method of importing the .png as a referenced graphic, does it show up OK? Art Art Campbell art.campbell at gmail.com "...
