Jim was one of several who. because I stated the problem/solution
incorrectly, misunderstood my post.
what I should have said was that, because we distribute the files on the
network, they must contain imbedded graphics--too tough on the user
otherwise. Imbedding the graphics makes the file unweildy. To fix the
problem, I must take a screen shot and make IT smaller--by changing it
to monochrome, making it smaller physically (too small for some text in
the shot), and then MAKE THE FILE SMALLER IN WAYS OTHER THAN BY LINKING
My fault for the confusion and I'm sorry.
