Sorry, this is driving me crazy. I am trying to draw a grid over an existing page. I construct the path and it does have the correct segments (I have a debug setting that traces all path segments) but when I add the path element to the Page Content it seems to hide the content, it also does not draw to the page. The page content remains visible until it needs to redraw (like if you drag another window over the page) but then it will not redraw. I have tried setting the stroke and fill opacity values but that seems to have no effect (actually none of the GraphicState stuff seems to have any effect). I must be missing something really basic but the code that I have seems to match with all of the sample code in the SDK. Anyone have any ideas?
