Re: FrameMaker 7.1 drops all referenced graphics in anchored frames

Hi Hedley,

I am not familiar with VSS, but with no grey boxes, the graphics may not be
missing, but shifted beyond the boundaries of the containing anchored frame.
Select one of the anchored frames, and select Edit > Select All In Frame.
Then try to select Graphics > Object Properties. If the command is greyed
out then the frame is empty; otherwise, the graphic is in the frame, but
cropped out of view.

In rare cases, I have see this happen when a FrameMaker document is opened.
One or more of the graphics will be "moved" beyond the edge of the anchored
frame when they are filtered.
