Re: Controlling white space around graphic frames

Hi Bart,

Yes, a good solution exists. Put the graphic in a anchored frame in a 
paragraph by itself, tagged something like FramePara. The anchored frame 
should be At Insertion Point, Baseline Offset=0.

Put the caption below it in a separate paragraph, perhaps FrameCaption.

The paragraph stack now looks like this:


You can control all vertical white space by controlling Space Above and 
Space Below for these tags. No manual adjustment is necessary -- just use 
the tags.

Make sure that:

    FramePara Line Spacing is *not* set to Fixed.
    You shrink-wrap the anchored frame
      around the graphic with Esc m p.
    You don't resize anchored frames by grabbing
      them from the bottom. This changes baseline

There are other ways (a one-cell table) but this is my recommended method. 
The results look very professional.
