Nancy, we use just one anchor tag for tabels and figures. It's just a tag to hang a frame on. I don't know of any reason to have separate tags.

Peter, I can easily generate a list of tags, and sort it any which way. That is not the issue. My question is, how do I see if there are any similar or dissimilar settings between two tags? In other words, all settings for Anchor and AnchorTable may be identical, except that the tabs for AnchorTable have been set with painstaking accuracy, while the tabs for Anchor are not useful. Let's say that I don't know that, and let's say that there are a couple of other subtle differences between the two tags that I am not aware of. (Why am I not aware? Because I've inherited a document previously worked on by two tech writers, the first of whom knew a lot more about Frame than the second. The second created sloppy tags, imported tags, didn't sort out discrepancies, and so on and so forth. Now I'm trying to clean it up a bit. There aren't enough problems to justify creating a new template from scratch, however.) The only way I know to identify the differences between two paragraph or character tags is to: 1. Generate a list of all tags and their characteristics 2. Find the listings for Anchor and AnchorTable (in this example) 3. Place them side-by-side on my screen or desk 4. Scan the many, many properties that are listed for those tags 5. Visually identify the discrepancies among settings I suppose I could also put the tags through every conceivable possible usage in a template and see how they behave, and figure out which properties are more desirable that way, but I don't have the time or patience. If you have any thoughts about how to automate the comparison of tag properties, I will be glad to hear them. --Nancy _______________________________________________ You are currently subscribed to Framers as dgcaller at earthlink.net.
