Does anyone know why this is happening? We have a ton of pre-printed stock paper forms that were misprinted by our vendor that we are hoping to still print our Design forms on. In Design, I am attempting to overlay the pre-printed 'bad' images with good ones I creat in Design. The hope is to 'overlay' the misprinted images with the good ones so our printouts look correct. To do this I created several boxes w texts (a black background and white lettering, for example) in the workspace that I thought would step over the misprinted ones when we actually do a print. The workspace presentation looks good however when we produce the paper output, the pre-printed 'bad' image seems to bleed thru despite my attempt to cover it up with a good image. How do I prevent this from happening so my Design items hide the pre-printed ones?

not sure what you're trying to do: you're printing black boxes with white text? And the background is shining through the white text? That would be what I would expect. You would need to print with opaque ink, which I'm not sure is possible at all.
