Xcelsius color changes between design and preview views

When I look at the color of a number of items (boxes, etc.), they look black in the design page (as they should be). When I press 'preview' or create an swf, they turn white. The reverse happens for much of the text that goes from white to black. Everything worked fine before I restarted my computer yesterday and now all files that I save/load from Xcelsius have this issue.

Also, for the first time I started getting messages about Excel being busy when I open Xcelsius files.

In what I can only describe as bizarre, the standard templates Xcelsius seem to work fine. However, just be saving them and then reloading them, it introduces the errors I have outlined above so it's not something I am doing wrong.

I have unistalled and re-installed Xcelsius so it can't be that. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Try to uninstall the flash player and then install the latest one. This might help you to fix the issue.

    For "Excel being busy" i would suggest you to avoid opening any other Excel instances while running the Xcelsius. (Close Excel process from Task manager).

    Let us know if u installed LiveOffice recently. If so then check and upgrade its patch/ fix level.
