Are you sure, Michael? I just tested this. I created a text frame inside an anchored frame. Then I created a graphics frame, and created a second text frame inside that. In the Object Properties dialog, neither text frame has a Flow Tag. It may be the case that FM can figure out the object order (dependency, hierarchy -- whatever you call it) when the text frame is in the anchored frame -- it's only one nested object removed from the flow, kind of like a table cell. Maybe FM only gets confused if there are additional "layers," like a graphic frame object, or some other complicating factor. In any case, Howard's numbering problem has plagued others as well. Using a table instead of putting the caption inside the anchored frame avoids the problem, however it's triggered. Richard ------ Richard G.
