Thanks for the suggestion. Since I had just recently performed a new Quicken install and R2 update a few weeks ago under 9.1 anyway, I tried just turning the backdrop off. It works fine now. I didn't toss the preferences but I did toss my old 98 preferences.
One thing I notice, tho', is that if you resize a window, the outline for the new size does not show up. Have you seen this problem?
