I have a problem using the Shadows function under the Drawing toolbar. Shapes to which I attach a shadow print unpredictably with and without shadows, even though all shapes on a given page have shadows attached. Which shapes print with shadows also changes each time the page is printed.

I am printing directly through a serial port using a printer cable to an HP Laser Jet 5 printer using the Windows XP supplied drivers. I switched to downloaded drivers from HP for the Laser Jet 5 for Windows XP with no change in this problem.
