Hi Jenny, Instead of using copy/paste, select the line and Control+Drag it to make a copy.
Rick Quatro Carmen Publishing 585-659-8267 www.frameexpert.com Long time lurker-first time poster. Using Windows XP SP2, FrameMaker 7.1 p116 I have a document with a frame in which I import a graphic by reference. I need two pointer lines to draw attention to two separate areas on that graphic. Our style guide requires parallel pointer lines. Using the Tools Palette, I draw one line to callout a field. I select that line and press Ctrl+C to copy it. I then re-select the graphic frame (to make sure the copied line ends up in the right frame and not floating around), then press Ctrl+V to paste the copied line. Sometimes it works fine, most times either the copy or the paste action crashes Frame completely and I lose everything. It happens often enough that I don't copy/paste in a graphic frame anymore... Any clues? Thanks, Jenny Roberts Information Technology-Client Services SYSCO Corporation
