When you apply FullGraphics to a graphics object, all labels and such
become text primitives. Text primitives, as with all other primitives,
must lie inside of the PlotRange. FullGraphics[] doesn't do a good job
of setting the PlotRange appropriately on the resulting output, so it's
best to add the option PlotRange->All to the Show[] command used to
display your FullGraphics[] result.

No problem. Hope this helps.

Bzz. I appreciate your frustration but I still love Mathematica. BTW, if
you have a registered copy of Mathematica, this is a question Wolfram's tech
support group could have answered without too much trouble.
