What happens if you are sending the electronic file to various people in a
department for additional work and they are going to be working on the document
on their local machine in their local copy of Frame?

In Frame, always import images by reference!! Always!!!
-Document file size is reduced.
-Image can be used by multiple documents.
-When an image/diagram is changed, it is dynamically updated within all
documents that use it.
BTW, after much experimentation with cool graphics programs and
diagramming tools, we have decided to go "back to the basics" and create
our diagrams using the standard Framemaker drawing tools.
Sometimes simplicity is really the best option.
