Well, I had your problem all figured out and a reply composed when I realized that it didn't quite fit. I hope your description isn't quite accurate, because if it is, a bug I've seen in previous versions of FM is even worse in 7.2 (which I recently moved to). A text inset is an object, like a variable or xref, that sits in a specific location in the text flow. What people usually refer to as the pgf that "follows" the text inset is actually the "container" pgf in which it sits. If you have View > Text Symbols on and you click the text inset to select it, you'll see that the selection extends past the end of the last pgf in the text inset and down into the "following" pgf. Now, the bug that I'm familiar with works like this: If a text inset sits at the end of its container pgf (immediately adjacent to the pilcrow), that pgf takes on the format of the first pgf in the text inset. (It's similar to the bug that causes a pgf format override when a char tag runs right up to the pilcrow.) The solution is simple: Separate the text inset and pilcrow. A space will do. I use a non-breaking space so that there's a text symbol to see on the screen. And that solution has always worked for me. But according to your description, there's already text between the end of the text inset and the end of its container pgf, and that container pgf is _still_ taking on the format of the first pgf in the text inset. Are you sure? That would be an annoying "escalation" of the bad behavior. When I get the chance, I'll see if I can duplicate that problem. If that's what's happening, I can think of only one easy answer: Always use a special pgf format as the text inset container (the "following" pgf) -- something small to minimize the extra vertical space -- and start every text inset with that same pgf format.
