To be clear, this is all I really need. I'm drawing pie and bar
graphs with text labels. I'd *love* for it to be as pretty as a PDF
equivalent, but that's not possible, apparently, without a *lot* of

Now *this* bothers me. The existing version of this application,
which uses PowerPlant, yields only one pasteboard type: PICT. There
*is* "transparency", though there may be a slight difference in
definition: I mean anywhere there *isn't* drawing is "transparent" (no
fill in the background). I *don't* mean "a translucent pie graph",
those tend not to print well anyway. ;-)
