You can actually fix the problem by removing the EdgeShapeFunction->"Line".

I should probably add that the problem seems to be with EdgeShapeFunction: it displays correctly in Mathematica, but does not export correctly to PDF.

comment Capturing an F1
@Kuba: but how does one store a value in a notebook? That is something I don't know how to do, and haven't gotten the answers to fully work over at mathematica.stackexchange.com/questions/5959/…

@bills: I actually would like to make sure they visit the help, however they do it. It's just that I explain the F1 option to them in class, which is why I would expect most would go that route.

comment Saving data inside a notebook so that I don't have to run it again?
Rojo, sorry I missed this chat invitation. Any way we could continue our discussion at some point? I would really like to be able to work this out.

comment Capturing an F1
This is great, but is there any way to store the lookedup variable between sessions? The students will do the lab, close it, send it to me, then I open it. Any way I can still find out what help items they've visited?

But then how would one use this mechanism to store something in the notebook from within a function? So that it is accessible from outside the function?

Yes, the function only does one thing (I am trying to keep it simple): it is passed a name, and tries to store that name in the notebook. For example, name="test";StoreInNotebook[name];GetFromNotebook[name] works just fine. It is the fact that StoreInNotebook is called from inside a function that is the problem I can't fix.
