Jeremy is correct.

I  initially sent this query to the list (Jeremy must get a squillion
queries and I thought the list could answer this one) but for some reason it
didn't get posted so after waiting 50 minutes or so I also sent the query
direct to Jeremy (and corrected the ENBEDDED typo:)).

Jeremy has since answered my query and I have since taken the necessary
steps to resolve the issue.

Thanks again Jeremy.

A pity it took 4.5 hours for the posting to hit the list but fortunately
Jeremy was much quicker. :)

Let's see how long it takes for this one to be posted.

It won't for embedded graphics, only for referenced.  The reason is that
with embedded graphics, we have to have Frame use its native graphic export
filters to produce images, and those always resample the graphics to the DPI
specified at the size of the anchored frame.

It's not 8.0, it's always the case for embedded graphics.  Another reason
that's a Real Bad Idea, as if more were needed...  ;-)

What you can do is labor-intensive, but you only have to do it once:
change from embedded to referenced.  If you still have the original
graphics, you can re-import them by reference with the embedded one
selected, and the referenced one will replace the embedded.

If you *don't* have the originals, you can export the embedded ones from
Frame with Mif2Go, rename them appropriately, then re-import as above.  See
par., "Exporting embedded graphics before converting".
