Re: Selecting graphic frame with other objects


It's always been like this. Apparently the thinking is that a graphic frame
is a different class of object from graphic objects. Text frames are
considered to be graphic objects for the purpose of multiple selection and
other operations. Graphic frames are unto themselves.
