adding on to PUBLISH

We have this problem... Does anyone else have a solution?  If one downloads
a PUBLISH file from GCG (VAX), and then tries to import that file into a
Macintosh drawing program like MacDraw Pro, the text begings to act
strange.  If one tries to  box a segment of sequence, or bold a segment of
sequence, or underline a segment of sequence within that file, although on
the screen evrything looks great, when the resultant file is printed, the
altered text has *moved* relative to the rest of the text.  In the case of
drawing a box around sequence, the box moves -- so the drawing program is
not WYSIWYG.  The only way we have been able to get around this is to
manually go and move the box in the draw program so that it looks okay on
printout.  Claris has not been very helpful.  I know that this problem is
not due only to the Courier font (same trouble in any font)  and that it
can be overcome by typing in an original text instead of importing it ( as
a Word file or a text file)  I would appreciate any suggestions, anyone out
there have a Mac-supported graphics program that will allow such additions
to PUBLISH outputs?
Thanks in any case,
