1 - Draw a BLACK rectangle the same size as the imported drawing.
2 - move the rectangle drawn so it covers your imported drawing, then press Page Down to Make sure the imported drawing IS
     the layer on top
3 - Select your imported drawing then hold shift key down and select the black rectangle you drew.
4 - From the top menu select Object->Mask->Set

You will have all your white text now in black on a white back ground.

Sorry about the delay, but finally got to try the fix. It WORKED.

Thank you so much!
