I tried to import the SVG into the picture box. It didn't work. It went to the 
background, and showed up only in print preview (I didn't try actually 
printing it), not in edit mode. Do I need to upgrade? I have 1.1.1.

I made a PDF, with the picture box containing the EPS. Same story. It prints 
the picture in grayscale, but shows color on the screen.
