Super Blade Pro problem

Hi, when I apply the 'coconut ice' Super Blade Pro effect, it puts a black background behind whatever layer I'm trying to do the effect on. Can anyone help me solve this problem?

Try selecting the things on the layer before applying the effect. Anytime I have forgotten to select first I get a mess like that.

Easiest way to get everything selected is to use Ctrl+A, Ctrl+F, Shift+Ctrl+F (Select All, Float Selection, De-Float Selection).

Thanks, I thought that was working (looked good in the preview) but then I hit apply and the black still appeared. The effect itself doesn't even show up clearly either. I used the magic wand to clear away the black which worked well, but the text effect does not look quite right.

hmmm... Haven't had that happen, although I have had a problem with SBP not working as well with PSP9 as it did with PSP8. It doesn't seem to 'hold' settings; if I apply a preset and then come back to do the same again, the settings are the same but it looks totally different. Have to re-select the preset to get it to apply right.

I wonder if SBP might need to be re-installed.
