Hi Kerstin,
I'm afraid I don't know enough about the underlying cause of this problem to
explain why it sometimes happens and sometimes doesn't. We had just under 20
files in a Frame book, and only 3 of them experienced problems. Our graphics
were embedded rather than imported by reference, and I found the most
problems when we used Frame's anchored frame to crop the image. I don't know
if any of those things are factors or not.

If I were you, I'd look around to find out about converting your images just
to have some info in the back of your mind. But I wouldn't build a detour
until the bridge collapses! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

Hi Danette!

This is the second time I read about the problems FM5.5 on Windows NT has
with .wmf files.

Well, we're using FM5.5.6 on Windows NT 4. All our vector graphics are
saved as *.wmf files; we import them as reference into FM - and I have
never had any troubles with them (in one and a half year). Nor have my
colleagues mentioned problems.

Does this mean that we're lucky, or do we have to expect troubles to pop up
any moment now? ;)
