You'll need to place the anchor in a paragraph at the top of your desired

Regardless of how it gets to the top, there are at least 3 ways to do this:
1-Put the anchor in the Figure/Table Title paragraph
2-Create a blank para and set the anchor position to At Insertion Point
3-Use the ol' 2pt Anchor para tag to minimize lost space at top of page

I'll let everyone else debate the merits of each approach...

Subject: Frames within Frames Question

Hello Framers,

We have books with different text frames for left and right master  
pages (in order to leave more space in the gutter than on the  
outside). When you insert a graphics frame for an illustration it  
references the page, not the text frame. The result is that if the  
pagination shifts, as it often does as you insert new graphics or  
futz with the text, the graphics frames are often off-center since  
they are getting their coordinates from the page, not the text frame,  
which has moved.

Does anyone have a workaround for this?

(It seems to contradict the very principle from which Framemaker gets  
its name!)

While I'm at it, it is annoying and time-consuming to have to set run- 
around properties separately every time a graphics frame is inserted.  
Shouldn't there be a Preference for "Always Run-around Bounding Box"?

(Mac FM 7.0, I'm on digest)
