We had a corrupted file once where the problem was that somehow we'd screwed an
imported text inset (the TOC). It was set to automatically update insets and
couldn't, so crashed. We deleted the TOC file and the chapter opened okay. So
if you're linking to any other files, not just graphics, try renaming them.
To repeat what everyone else has said, we have our graphics in a separate
folder and reference them with no problems. You can always get the name of the
referenced files out of FM.

I do not reference my graphics, but this may be a good reason to do
so. Altho having the graphics in the files makes them larger, I also
thought it would be easier to manage the book without a directory of
I'd be interested to hear from those of you who reference graphics
about how hard it is (or isn't) to keep track of the graphic files.
