I have a problem with colours when I try to print to a postscript file. I am trying to plot a histogram and then colour the area under the curve that fits the data in the histogram. When I colour the area with the option


I can not see the histogram which I printed before. This is normal because it is the option for solid colours. However, if I choose


I have solid colours as well (not on the screen, where the curve appears with no colour, but in the postscript file).

Finally, if I set


the histogram looks nice on the screen, with the correct pattern it is supposed to have, and I can see both the histogram and the curve on it, but the PS file only has an empty curve with no colour at all.

If I print it to GIF format, for instance, the colours are displayed correctly, but that is not what I want.

In conclusion, I would like to see the histogram under the curve in addition to the coloured curve in a postscript file.

Is there any way to do it? My version of ROOT is 4.04/02.

Thanks in advance,
