No, no OLE graphics here. Nearly all screen shots are imported by reference, with the odd screen shot implanted in the file. I have not noticed any gray boxes.

I suspect some of your graphics are not being saved. I have seen that error a lot lately, especially since our IT dept installed XP SP3 on our machines. Do you use OLE for any of your graphics in your manuals? If so you may be dismayed to find they have likely all been blown away. Check the new files for gray boxes where graphics should be. I found that the first time I opened a document with OLE images, the images appeared fine when I first opened the file but if I tried to save the file, I got the "graphics have not been saved" error message and the alphanumeric extension on the file. The only solution to the problem was to eliminate all OLE graphics and replace them with images imported by reference. This bug was introduced with XP SP3 and there are no fixes that I know of (and certainly none planned for Frame 6). Best of luck. Berny Gagne Lead Writer Husky Injection Molding Systems Ltd.

Recently I have noticed that when I save a FM file some times I get an error message, something like "graphics have not been saved"; the saved file's name is filename.fm.threelettersorcharacters, e,g, filename.fm.1A2. I have to delete the 1A2 manually. I just saved 03 DB Management.fm as 03DBManagement.fm because the mif2go Help says spaces are bad in a file name to be converted, but what resulted was 03DBManagement.fm.701. (Never have I had a problem saving a FM file with spaces in its name as RTF using mif2togo, eg, 03 DB Management.fm, but I was following the mif2go Help instructions.) Why am I getting these three-letter-and-number-combination suffixes when I save a FM file?
