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.
