I get the feeling that I may have Tooltips that are full of text that is  
the same color as the space but can't prove it. I have tried just about  
every configuation change I can find with no results but have had some  
pretty wild looking layouts in Scribus. lol

Thanks for your response, I appreciate it

take care
