    You have exported to a bitmap format using an Alpha Channel. FH turns off
    background layer screening during this process and forgets to turn it on
    again.

    Ian Kelleigh posted the cure here:

    To quote Ian:
    "To easily remedy this situation, follow these simple steps:
    1. At any point do an Export
    2. Choose any bitmap format (TIF, GIF, JPG, etc.)
    3. Click the Options button
    4. Turn off the Alpha includes background option then click OK.
    5. Hit the Cancel button so you don't actually export anything.

    Then your background layers will return to normal. "

    Thankyou very much for your answer - it worked a treat.

    The problem was driving me bonkers for the last couple of weeks.
