Hi Alastair, I also think that icons are far better than just the tooltip text. Of course this depends always on your audience ... Why don't you do it this way? Copy the new icon. Place the cursor where you want it to have. Paste the graphic there (CTRL + V). Press ESC m p (which will shrinkwrap

Hi Dave, I also noticed that FrameMaker crashed sometimes when I resize a frame down to the bottom. In my case it was the main text frame on a body page. Windows 7 Enterprise, FrameMaker 8, 10, 11. I did not test yet, whether it happened less often when I drag the frame slowly. I noticed it less

I would agree with Michael. We've used AutoText for years to insert anchored frames containing icons/small graphics - both in-line and in the margins. It has saved us a lot of time. It seems like the perfect solution for Alastair (the original poster). I have mentioned AutoText to Alastairin

Karen, Does your file have text imported from Word or RTF? Depending on your import options setup, Word styles come in as tags and they may be hiding in empty paragraphs (spaces between paragraphs with FM tags) or as the very last tag where end of the flow mark appears. Do you use HTML Setup
