Re: More on my chart background color

G'day Jody.
This problem is documented in Mike Hobart's pages. Basically it comes about because Generations is a Windows 98 programme and XP uses the 2000 colour palette.
If you do a new chart it shows in black and white, but prints OK. If you save it, it will then open in colour but print in black and white.
I think if you save a chart before, open it first, then make a new chart all works OK.
Broderbund version 8.5.a with a downloaded patch corrects this problem.
