Try clicking on the "Fast Display" button in the lower right. This turns
certain effects on/off to speed up the display.

I tried that. It makes no difference. All watercolor fills are still invisible.

The entire fill, or just the water color effect? Can you post a sample irf
or a screenshot?

Is it just this drawing or all drawings? Did the style get inadvertently
scaled? Check the layer opacity. Can you post a sample irf that displays
this problem?
What is your computer setup?
1 screen or multiple?
XP or Vista?
Video card make/model?

It happens in all drawings, scaling and opacity are fine.
I've attached an irf.

About my computer setup, I have 2 screens,
Windows XP Professional, Version 2002, Service Pack 3 &
ATI FireGL V5200.

It seems to work fine on my computer. Does it matter what screen Impression
is on? I have read that XP only supports Hardware Acceleration on the
primary monitor. Do you have the latest driver for your GPU installed?

Maybe something is corrupted in Impression. You might need to try a
re-install. Make sure all firewall/antivirus software is off during the
install.

Thanks for your help.

I used autocad performance tuner (command entry: 3Dconfig).
From there you can "check for updated versions of the graphics card and driver database that is used for performance tuning".
That fixed my problem.
