    Here's one thing you might check: The background layer won't grey out is if
    it is above the horizontal seperator bar in the layers panel. Only layers
    below the bar are greyed out.

    Thanks for the quick reply, but nothing (and by nothing I mean no layers) below the line turns gray.
    Another idea?

    I'm not very familliar with NT or 2K, but I'm guessing it may be a display
    driver issue. You might check that by launching Freehand under a Windows
    default driver and see if the condition persists.

    Ye it's deep in the tree and in a place you wouldn't think to look. If you
    have at some point exported a raster image with with 'Alpha Includes
    Background', FH disabled they graying of your background layers to create
    the alpha masks and forgets to reset it back.

    Ian Kelleigh describes it in detail here and tells you how to restore your
    background to normal grayness:

    Incredibly, this is still happening in FHMX! Hey Macromedia, isn't it about
    time to fix this?

    Changing the bitmap export defaults did the trick (explained in [url]www.freehandsource.com[/url]).
    Thanks to everyone who replied.
