Jim - as far as I can remember, this is a known bug caused by imported EPS graphics that's been present since at least V 5. I don't seem to have a note of the specific cause, or a workaround, other than turning off graphics display when you don't need it. If this is indeed the same bug, Rick Quattro has a plug-in that fixes it. Here's his comments from last time round, to save him having to type them in again ;-) At 08:21 -0500 10/12/05, Rick Quatro wrote: >This is what I like to call FrameMaker's "Scroll Back Bug".
