screen. Right now the only way to see them is to print them on
a PS printer, another hassle because I don't have full time
access to one. =(
I would like to be able to use these fills in MM Director
presentations as well as other screen oriented things (like
recording the screen to video tape.)

I would rather find a shareware program because they are
cheaper and I like to support small programmers as opposed
to large corporations. (The fact that have have almost no money
at the moment definitely does figure into this equation ;).
