Have a look at the 2D Representation settings of the objects, at the fill type, fill pen and background pen. Change these as required.

If its not this, it could be Graphic Overrides or Renovation Filters that are changing the look of cover fills.

Or your pen sets are not set up for default object settings.

Hi Stuart, many thanks for getting back to me! please excuse my basic questions as im still a beginner. when you say change the fill and pen type, im assuming you mean altering them from black to white and reducing the pen down to the minimum settings?? I will start changing them now and see what happens. Jon
