Galaxy pictures intrude on printed charts

I have searched the help and the FAQ files but I cannot solve this problem. 

When I print a finder chart, if there are any galaxy images in the area, they appear as black rectangles (depending on the chosen scale) which, in the dark, can be mistaken for stars that are not there.

I have tried all the options I can think of and I have tried chart mode as well as the normal mode but they are still there.

I may be wrong but I don't think this has always been the case so I guess I have mis-set something - if only I could figure out what it is.
