You have control over the line drawing in the draft Viewer through Preferences. You can set it to use the special line-drawing characters or to use regular characters, and you can specify what those characters should be.

I do this quite a lot myself, and the RTF opens and prints nicely in
Microsoft Word (97). It doesn't export to text as well, though. The
box-boundary characters (for, say, FREQUENCIES or CROSSTABS output) use
a special SPSS-specific font, and are translated to question marks in a
text output file.
Does anyone have a Word macro, or other tool, to change the SPSS
box-boundary characters to standard ASCII? It needn't be fancy; "-" for
horizontal line, "|" for vertical, and "+" for corners is plenty good enough.
