Thanks Herv & Stuart for their assistance. 

Alas! My needs go a little beyond knowing just the names of the files. 

In many cases the original screenshots have some specific settings that
I need to capture for the illustration. 

I ended up going through the printed version of the most recent release
to get most of that info, and generated the list of referenced graphics
to accompany it. Then I went through the whole exercise without
FrameMaker even open - it was sub-optimal, but I was able to get it all
done in good time. 

Now I still need to figure out how to work on a Frame doc Frame actually

Hi John, 

If you create a List of References, that will give you the file names of
all your imported graphics, in order.  Maybe that would help? 

In Frame 6 (I don't have 7), this is Special > List of > References... 

In Set up dialog, select Imported Graphics.

Subject: Freeze Frame when selecting Object Properties

When I select Object Properties on a referenced image on my home PC,
FrameMaker freezes. 

I am using FrameMaker 7.1.116, pretty plain vanilla version except it
has IXGen. It is set to Structured, but I am not actually using any
structure tools or methods. 

This is the same book that I work on at my office in Lexington with no
problems at all. That machine has Schlomo's timesavers on it, and it too
has IXGen. 

This has happened at home for about three weeks or four weeks. I don't
know of any significant changes in that time.  

I am trying to rebrand a finished book with all new screenshots. I have
done this a hundred times and it is easy - look at the image to be
replaced, get a new screenshot and save it as the same name, and
continue. But to do it I need to know the name of the image I am
replacing, and i do that by getting the Object Properties. I know there
are other ways, but this way is very fast and efficient....until now!

Any ideas?
