For what it's worth, I haven't had any troubles either embedding Visio
objects and I've done it numerous times in several books.

I know that folks will likely tell you that it's not the recommended
but I have embedded Visio objects into a couple of FM books
successfully. I
learned about it from another list member (John, are you out there?),
and it
has been fine.

Other than that, the recommended procedure is clumsy at best: create a
from Visio, crop it, save as .eps, import into FM (think I'm remembering
that right). Ugly if you expect change to the Visio drawings as I did.
