Thanks for the responses. Nothing helps so far.
The autofill fills a pre-defined text field in the centre of the back label for a CD case.
When I click on this object I see "File/folder List Properties". The file name are all shown,
Font is Arial size 11. No style text effect selected. I have chosen a separate colour for each of
outline, Fill color, and border colour. The box at the bottom shows the preview effect and it all looks good.
I click OK and see no text. I see the fill colour and that is it.
I see no saturation setting as such.
The only way to get the text back at all, is to go "View, show smart objects, change the project type, and the text is back as default. I.e. no changes made to colours or text are retained.
I am trying to understand if this is an XP problem or a graphics card issue. Assuming that you guys cannot reproduce this under XP.
