<<When I open the files within the master doc, some (not all) of the

Cutting and pasting.... hmmmmm...

Well, I've abandoned the Master/sub docs, having been told by everyone
that they're too buggy to use. I figure I'll use the Reference
Document field feature to make the TOC and index.

Now, I'm finding that I'm losing graphics even without the M/s docs!
I'll have a good version of a file, with graphics. If I put it in
another folder, they disappear. If I open the good one and save it
into another folder, no more graphics. And if I paste new graphics in,
then save and close, when I open it, the graphics are gone once more.

This is getting very frustrating!
