Linda, the reason I use anchors for graphics, and tables is that I can:
1.  do a search for Anchor_F (which is my graphic anchor) or Anchor_T
2.  Set next paragraph format
3. Spacing above and below
4. span columns
5. etc., etc.,

said it. Believe nothing just because a belief is 
generally held. Believe nothing just because it is 
said in ancient books. Believe nothing just because 
it is said to be of divine origin. Believe nothing 
just because someone else believes it. Believe only 
what you yourself test and judge to be true." -- Buddha
