Winfried, I could kiss you. That works - although I have to be careful with the timing of the ESC m p; too fast and it doesn't work, too slow and it just types 'mp' at the insertion point.
Do we have gold star awards for framers? -----Original Message----- From: framers-boun...@lists.frameusers.com [mailto:framers-boun...@lists.frameusers.com] On Behalf Of Reng, Dr. Winfried Sent: 17 September 2013 08:51 To: email@example.com Subject: RE: Inserting inline graphics Hi Alastair, I also think that icons are far better than just the tooltip text. Of course this depends always on your audience ... Why don't you do it this way? Copy the new icon. Place the cursor where you want it to have. Paste the graphic there (CTRL + V). Press ESC m p (which will shrinkwrap the anchored frame to the size of your icon; additonally the anchoring position is set to At Insertion Point). Press these keys one after the other. If the icon should be moved up or down, then you have to select the anchored frame and change the Distance above Baseline. Create an object style with the correct distance and save it. Then you can apply this setting with a mouse click. Or do you have other settings of your anchored frame? After all these e-mails I do not know your actual settings.
