Text insets and cross-references that are updated automatically (upon opening 
the file),? even if no changes result, will also cause Frame to think the file 
is modified.? Took me a while to figure that out, as it is very confusing to 
simply open a file and have FM indicate that it's been modified.

The table itself, the Table Title pgf, or the pgf containing the table 
anchor?? All three have their own Start settings that you should check.

The asterisk means the file has been modified, although you may not have 
modified the content yourself.? Something as simple as changing the zoom 
counts as "modification".? Also, if you generate a TOC or cross-reference 
from another file, FM inserts markers thereby also modifying the files.

Each file that is part of a book is commonly called a "chapter", whether 
you title it as such or not.? The numbering properties don't affect 
pagination, so don't worry about changing that.
