Sorry...I read too quickly. The Shift command changes the "Open" to "Open
All", "Save" to "Save All" or "Save All in Book" and "Close" to "Close All"
or "Close All in Book".

Have you saved the book as MIF, then re-opened in FM7

You held down the Shift before clicking on the File menu?

Ok, I tried that.Does not seem to exist.
I.e., when I hold down the Shift key, there does not appear in the File
menu, an 'All' version of the Save As command allowing me to save all the
chapters at once as an earlier version.

So, so far it seems that programing is the only way to go for a professional
solution.

Meantime, I recorded a Windows macro using the QM QuickMacros app, which
allows me to select a document in the book and then do all the ops
automatically to save the chapter as the earlier version. So that helps a
lot.

However, every now and again FM displays a message asking me what to do
about bad cross-references, thus the other question I posted today about
suppressing them book wide.

Thanks,

 avi
