There are several kinds of problems I have experienced over the years since I bought Mathematica. I was wondering if anyone with similar experiences could tell me what to do. 1. Whenever I display a graphics object with lots of lines and points (on the order of 50), some of them fail to render. The problem can sometimes be (sort of) fixed by making two copies of each object (on top of each other) but I would prefer to not have to deal with it at all. 2. Another problem I have experienced with only a moderate number of objects is that the display range won't be big enough to contain the whole picture. Sometimes, I can't evern get it to display the whole thing even if I manually set the plot range. 3. I have only experienced this problem once. I was printing up a section of my thesis in the computer lab (these computers have Mathematica 4.0) and it wouldn't print any diagrams that I imported into Mathematica as bitmaps. Back at home (with 3.0) I didn't have this problem. Is there some setting I can change to fix this? 4. I would also like to know if there is a way of fixing the location (page) of a diagram and letting the text just flow past it. My thesis has lots of diagrams and when one won't fit on the remainder of the page, it leaves the rest of the page blank and puts the diagram on the next page. I don't want big blank spaces on my thesis. Thanks in advance to whomever can provide me with much-needed assistance. Dustin Soodak New College, FL
