Printing "white" objects

I am using CorelDRAW 7 with an Epson Stylus Color 800 printer.  For the sake of simplicity, I will use an example of creating a donut graphic using two objects.  If I create a circle with a solid red fill, and place a smaller circle inside with a solid white fill using values of 0 for all four of the CKMY fields, should not the smaller circle in the center print completely white.  In my case it doesn't.  I have fooled around with the halftoning and dithering settings, but I can still see tiny little faint dots.  I suppose I could rework the graphic so that it would be just a ring with no object in the center, thus allowing the plain paper to show through but this would be much more work in many other cases.  Is there any way to create an object with a completely white fill?

Thanks,

Don

I have had similar problems, and the only way I could get round the 'little dots' was to zoom in on the area of white and change the individual pixels.  This is OK when the area is not too big, but can be time consuming with large images.

If this is not the case, then there must be a problem with the settings on your Epson printer.  You could try changing the print darkness on the profile to 'light' as this sometimes works.
