hi jens 

i just realized that i didn't reply to this. 

ok it prints much btter on paper. 

will it be the same if i export the graphic into word. for example? i
forgot to try it... i guess i could just try it next week.

what is the reason for such poor display on monitor? maybe it's the
frontend deal...
