Re: VoterComment

I think I have fixed this problem but without a printer there is no way to
confirm this.

If the problem is what I think it is then the "watermark" should only appear
if you print directly from the SummaryReportDlg screen. If you preview the
report and then print it from the preview screen the "watermark" should not
occur.  Can anyone confirm that this is the case?
