Fwd: Format menu question

Note: I just sent this from my work address, which is not subscribed
to either framers list.  I expect it to bounce back, so I'm sending it
again from my personal address.  Apologies if the message appears
extra times.

Hi framers,

I'm learning to use QuicKeys to accelerate some of my FrameMaker tasks,
and I've run into what appears to be an anomaly in Frame itself.  I suspect
the behavior I'm seeing is in fact predictable, but I haven't figured out what
conditions make it happen.

Because I haven't found a way to make QuicKeys move the focus to the
status bar, I've been motivated to look for creative ways to specify a unique
paragraph tag to apply without using Control+9, which is my usual method.

At one point, I found that selecting Format-->Paragraphs included a list of
all of the paragraphs in my catalog below the selections Designer and Catalog.
Later, the list of paragraph tags was gone from the menu.  I'm not sure what
I did as I tried to figure this out, but not long after, the tags reappeared
in the menu.

Does anyone know how the Format-->Paragraphs menu "decides" what
to include?  When this happened to me again today, I switched the focus
to a different Frame document and the tags reappear on the menu, and
when I went to back the original document, they were still there.

I'm baffled.  Can anyone help me understand what's going on?
