More salsa for your gander 1. Importing a .jpg by reference (anchored or not) = everything shrinks: doc, frames, fonts, windows, pods = the whole enchilada becomes a shrink wrapped taquito (small taco, fit of fitted, for a boca chica = wee mouth). If I quit Frame and do not save the the file, it reopens normally, thanks to God and 100% Blue Agave Tequila. This problem creates a screen similar to what happened a few weeks ago when upgrading to the latest patch of Frame 12., except that I was forced to perform a complete reinstall of Frame 12. The rest of TCS 5 seems to be shrink proof. 2. If I import by "copy into document" (anchored or not) = everything is OK, including the enchilada. 3. When I right click on "Fm" on the task bar, the "recent" section shows only one doc, and it is the "Chap Template) = which I have not opened for several days. Since, there are only 4 pinned docs, I know that the total of 5 do not exceed the total allowed based on past experience. This issue was not a problem with Frame 11. 4. When I open Frame from the task bar, I see that the order of docs listed in "Recent Items is correct,which shows me that item 3, above is buggy. This issue was not a problem with Frame 11.
Note of great importance: the reason WWII pilots calmly yelled SNAFU, SNAFU (Situation Normal All Fitted Up) was because they knew if they were lucky enough to survive, their children and grandchildren would some day be using Framemaker, and would need a calming remedy in case they ran out of Tequila.
