Christopher - We are on the same version. I've never experienced the program
close on the scroll bar, but on my current project I have a larger than
average number of screen shot pictures. My document is primarily for PDF
reading online so I'm not going to press at all, so for this project, I'm
not using EPS.
What I like about the saved image is that if developers make an alteration
on a screen form, I just replace the image file and it updates in the book.
BTW: I'm an old newbie. I used FM on Sun Micro Solaris waaay back and am now
back to neophyte! :)

Subject: FW: FM abruptly closes with no save

Pete-- I'm using FM 8 on Windows XP. I got one suggestion that the
scroll bar sometimes makes the program close, but I think it was when I
inserted the new frame that it happened. Anyway, "Save" will now be part
of my iterative process.

You might try saving the powerpoint image as a png / bmp / gif, and then
do
a import file. 
What version of FM, & what platform?

I've been learning FM in the middle of a project, and it sometimes seems
a bit ornery. I'm inserting graphics linked from a Powerpoint file.
First I do Special > Anchored Frame, and set "Top of column". Then I
paste the graphic into the frame. Twice today, after I have done this
process 5 or 10 times, I perform the first step and suddenly FM closes
without saving. Since contemporary software usually includes a Newbie
Detector Module to make things more exciting for the beginner, maybe
someone could suggest a way to make myself less obvious to the NDM.
Thanks.
