Doesn't FM 11 allow you to create Object tags similar to Pgf tags? I 
only have FM 10, so don't know if that would be a solution.

For myself, I would create suitably sized and populated anchored frames 
in a text box on a reference page, with each frame anchored At Insertion 
Point and Distance Below Baseline set to -3pt or whatever suits the font 
size/leading. Then I'd copy/paste frames from that "button library" as 
required.  Note to Alistair, I do hope you are importing the graphic 
only once, by reference, and then copying/pasting that instance?  Not a 
good idea to import by copying into the document over and over.
