There is no timing to it. Press Esc; let it go; press m; let it go; press p;
let it go. These are not keys pressed in combination but in sequence and you
can count to 10 between the keystrokes if you want to. Works every time.
It's the shrink-wrap function. Great for making sure you have the entire
graphic showing in an anchored frame. 

 

Remember: Don't press the keys at the same time; it's one after the other.

I'm sorry you feel that way, Fred.

 

I did try your solution and couldn't get it to work straight off. It seems
for some reason that the timing of the entry of esc m p is absolutely
crucial. 

 

Winfried was the first to suggest using object styles, maybe because they
only came in with Frame 11.

 

When I have received off-list responses, I've often responded to the list,
not directly to the sender. Not all of my responses to the list are coming
up on the list, and some are taking as long as 3 days to appear.

For the record, I recommended this exact solution in a direct (off-list)
reply to Alastair last Monday, within hours of his original query appearing
on the list. I use it all the time and would go crazy without it.

It appears that perhaps Alastair (or his employer) has his email account set
up to block messages from unknown individuals and only accepts messages that
are posted to the list. At least one other poster has noted he sent several
private replies to you that had gone unacknowledged even though they
proposed workable solutions. 

If you're posting a query, it probably would be a very good idea for you to
mention any restriction to how list members should reply (e.g. direct
replies only because you're on digest, or on-list replies only due to email
filtering) so that the rest of us don't waste too much time and energy.
