X3 trace results versus Version 12

 Why is it that now in X3 when I trace a B&W drawing I get so many redundant objects?

Before I would have a black curve form in back and all the white curve forms "on top" of the black.

Now with X3 there are so many layers - the black background curve is not solid anymore - all the white fill curves of the drawing are cut into the black background as well. 

It seems much more complicated than the trace results I got in V.12.

I've tried changing the trace settings but I can't seem to get the results I want.

Do I just go back to version 12 trace?
