Re: equations, and fonts, and conversions - oh my!

There is a way to turn the wmf facets into editable Frame graphics,
which is to use the "atomise" command.

<esc> g U

(Note the upercase U.)

This, apparently is a super variation on the "ungroup" command.

Be warned, though, that the text may turn into a large number of "text
lines" (you know, like the "A" tool on the tools pallete).

Anyway, it's better than nothing and it means that you can manipulate
these object at last.
