Sounds like the text is trying to "runaround" the graphic. Try this...

Right click the graphic > Runaround Properties > Don't Run Around > Set

Subject: Losing text I add to a graphic

Hi all:

FM 8.0, Windows XP.

When I add text to a graphic, I use the A (Draw a Text Line) tool.

Then I need to drag my text around to position it exactly.

Sometimes, I lose some of my text.  For instance, I'll type in 10
(8PL), but when I drag it to a new location, it'll arrive as 0 (8PL)
or 10(P  -- either the start or the finish will be missing.

Any ideas if I'm doing something wrong, or what's the dealio?

Happy Tuesday!
